North Carolina 
State University 



North Carolina State University is a national center for research, teaching, 
and extension in the sciences and technologies, in the humanities and social 
sciences, and in a wide range of professional programs. 

Founded March 7, 1887, by the North Carolina General Assembly under the 
provisions of the national Land-Grant Act, the University has marked more than 
a century of service to the state and the nation. Sharing the distinctive character 
of Land-Grant universities nationwide, NCSU has broad academic offerings, 
national and international linkages, and large-scale public service, extension, 
and research activities. 

Teaching and Research 

The University is organized into nine colleges, the School of Design, the Gradu- 
ate School, and the Division of Undergraduate Studies. The colleges are Agricul- 
ture and Life Sciences, Education and Psychology, Engineering, Forest Re- 
sources, Humanities and Social Sciences, Management, Physical and Mathe- 
matical Sciences, Textiles, and Veterinary Medicine. These colleges and schools 
offer baccalaureate degrees in 89 fields, master's degrees in 80 fields, and doc- 
toral degrees in 51 fields. Together with more than 30 research centers and 
institutes, these colleges and schools also support a broad spectrum of more than 
1,200 scientific, technological, and scholarly research endeavors. 

Extension and Outreach 

Extension units carry teaching and research programs to each of North Carol- 
ina's 100 counties and the Cherokee Indian Reservation. Extension credit courses 
are currently delivered live and by cable, video, and satellite to 45 states and the 
District of Columbia, as well as to England, France, Spain, Mexico, Canada, 
Germany, Austria, and Venezuela. 

Campus 

The central campus of the University, located west of the downtown area of 
Raleigh, consists of 154 major buildings on 623 acres. Adjacent to the central 
campus are the new 940-acre Centennial Campus and the College of Veterinary 
Medicine campus. Nearby are research farms; biology and ecology sites; genet- 
ics, horticulture, and floriculture nurseries; forests; and Carter-Finley Stadium 
that together extend over 2,700 acres. Elsewhere across the state are research 
farms and a research forest of 82,000 acres. 

Research Triangle 

NCSU is one of the three Research Triangle universities along with Duke 
University in Durham and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 
Within the 30-mile triangle formed by the three universities is the 6,800-acre 



Research Triangle Park, location of many public research agencies and private 
research centers of national and international corporations. 

Faculty 

The University has approximately 6.500 employees. Faculty and other aca- 
demic personnel total 2,775, including 1,917 graduate faculty. Among the many 
honors and recognitions received by members of the faculty are seven member- 
ships in the National Academy of Science and four in the National Academy of 
Engineering, 37 named professorships, 19 University distinguished professor- 
ships. 73 Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professors, and currently over 
260 members of the Academy of Outstanding Teachers. 

Students 

In the 1992 fall semester, the University's headcount enrollment totaled 27.157. 
Included in this number were 18.694 students in undergraduate degree pro- 
grams. 4.673 in graduate degree programs, and 3,790 Lifelong Education stu- 
dents. The combined undergraduate and graduate enrollments by college were: 
Agriculture and Life Sciences - 3,767; Design - 618; Education and Psychology 
-1,656; Engineering - 7,016: Forest Resources - 823; Humanities and Social 
Sciences - 3.615; Management - 2.156; Physical and Mathematical Sciences 
-1,438; Textiles - 993; and Veterinary Medicine - 336. There were 400 students in 
the University Undesignated Program and 142 in the University Transition 
Program. The student population included 2,461 African-American students: 
1,235 other minority students, and 10.641 female students. Students at the Uni- 
versity come from 49 states, three United States territories, and approximately 
92 foreign countries. The international enrollment is a distinctive feature of the 
institution as more than 1 ,200 international students give the campus a cosmopol- 
itan atmosphere. 

Visual and Performing Arts 

Each year the University provides its students with a wide range of opportuni- 
ties for participation in, and exposure to, the arts. The Visual Arts Center hosts 
changing exhibitions of contemporary art and design and houses the University's 
collections of ceramics, photography, and textiles. The Music Department spon- 
sors visiting artists in short-term residencies, faculty recitals, and a large 
number of student ensembles that perform both on and off campus. Thompson 
Theatre is the University's producing theatre. The Crafts Center provides oppor- 
tunities for hands-on-experience in crafts courses such as pottery, wood working, 
fibers, and photography. Center Stage/Stewart Theatre annually presents 35 or 
more professional events. The Dance Program provides both credit and non- 
credit opportunities with dance groups and dance courses. The Films Program 
provides an international film series, a series of independent/experimental film 
makers, and popular commercial films. The Friends of the College Program 
presents five to seven major national and international classical/cultural con- 
certs each year. 



Athletics 

The University's "Wolfpack" athletic teams are well-known nationally. The 
men's basketball team won national championships in 1974 and in 1983 and holds 
10 Atlantic Coast Conference titles. The football team has been the Atlantic Coast 
Conference champion five times, co-champion twice, and has played in 14 bowl 
games. The Wolfpack women's cross-country team won national championships 
in 1979 and 1980 along with 10 ACC crowns, while the men's and women's soccer 
teams have both advanced to the NCAA's "final four" in the last five years. The 
women's basketball team, under the direction of 1988 United States Olympic 
gold-medal winning coach Kay Yow, has played in 1 1 of 15 ACC title games. The 
wrestling team has won nine ACC titles while the men's swim team has claimed 
24 conference championships. Providing additional color and spirit for the 
games, the cheerleading squad was recognized three times as national cham- 
pions. Numerous individual NCSU athletes have won NCAA titles, national 
championships, and international honors, including medals in the last four 
Olympic Games in which the United States has competed.

PRE-PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS 

Pre-Law Program. Law schools neither prescribe nor recommend a particu- 
lar undergraduate curriculum for prospective candidates. A student may pre- 
pare for law school by a careful use of electives within any of the baccalaureate 
curricula offered by the ten colleges with undergraduate programs. There are 
two faculty advisers designated to assist pre-law students with selection of 
appropriate electives and concentrations. They also advise the Pre-Law Student's 
Association which is open to all interested students. This group invites outside 
speakers to make presentations about law schools and careers in the law. In 
addition, the group makes at least one and sometimes two visits per year to local 
law schools where the students can attend classes and visit with directors of 
admissions. For further information, consult Dr. D.L. Baumer, 114 Nelson Hall, 
(919) 515-6950, or Dr. B. B. Levenbook. 106 Winston Hall, (919) 515-3214. 

Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dentistry, and Pre-Optometry Programs. Students 
preparing for medical, dental, or optometry schools major in areas such as the life 
sciences or physical sciences (frequently biology, chemistry, biochemistry, or 
zoology), the humanities or social sciences (frequently psychology), or engineer- 
ing. Health science professional schools are more interested in the quality and 
scope of the applicants' education than in their academic major. 

The Department of Zoology offers a pre-medical/pre-dental curriculum lead- 
ing to a baccalaureate degree in zoology. The University Review Committee for 



17 



Pre-professional Applicants in Health Sciences assists students in preparing 
applications and in providing evaluations to professional schools. For further 
information, consult Dr. W. C. Grant, Agriculture and Life Science, chairman of 
the Review Committee, or the pre-professional health science advisers in the 
several colleges: Dr. S. A. Rajala, Engineering; Dr. M. L. Miles, Physical and 
Mathematical Sciences; and Dr. J. N. Wall, Jr., Humanities and Social Sciences. 
Pre- Veterinary Program. A pre-veterinary program of study is offered by 
the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences which may be taken by students 
majoring in animal science, poultry science, zoology, or biological sciences as well 
as in many other science curricula, such as biochemistry or chemistry. If a 
student is accepted to veterinary medical school before completion of his or her 
undergraduate degree, some course credits may be transferable from the veteri- 
nary program toward completion of the Bachelor of Science degree. Arrange- 
ments for this procedure should be made with the degree-granting school or 
department prior to entering veterinary college. For further information, con- 
tact the Academic Programs Office of the College of Agriculture and Life Sci- 
ences, (919) 515-2614 or the Admissions Office for Veterinary Students of the 
College of Veterinary Medicine, (919) 829-4205, for general information concern- 
ing admission to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine programs at NCSU.

Natural Resources Curricula 

The area of "natural resources" covers broad, technically complex and interre- 
lated systems of physical, biological, economic, and political areas. Rising 
demand for use of all natural resources, from recreational opportunities to min- 
erals, from mountain forests to the ocean depths, creates difficult environmental, 
economic, and ethical questions. 



22 



BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN NATURAL RESOURCES 

A new degree program in Natural Resources was established in 1992. It is 
designed to address the interdisciplinary nature of natural resource problems 
and to prepare students for entry-level positions in government or private indus- 
try/consulting firms or for graduate school. The program consists of a common 
core and concentrations developed by participating academic departments. The 
84-hour core meets all University general education requirements, but it 
emphasizes foundation coursework in the natural sciences - biology, chemistry, 
earth sciences, and associated mathematics and statistics. Also in the core are a 
freshman introductory course and a senior capstone course designed specifically 
for natural resource majors. Currently, there are seven natural resource concen- 
trations being offered by four departments, but others may be added in the future 
in response to student interest and employment opportunities. 

Concentrations 

Ecosystem Assessment (Department of Forestry, 44 hours) 
Policy and Administration (Department of Forestry, 45 hours) 
Geological Resources (Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric 

Sciences, 36 or 37 hours) 
Marine and Coastal Resources (Department of Marine, Earth and Atmos- 
pheric Sciences, 36 hours) 
Soil Resources (Department of Soil Science, 42 hours) 
Soil and Water Resource Systems (Department of Soil Science, 43 hours)

Arts Studies 

NCSU offers a rich variety of courses in the history, analysis, and production of 
the arts— dance, film, music, theatre, visual arts. Many of these courses are open 
to students without prerequisite. Offered by 13 departments in four different 
colleges of the University, they are listed under "Arts Studies" in the "Course 
Descriptions" section of the catalog and described in detail under their depart- 
mental prefix. 

In addition to these courses, most of which focus on a single art form, the 
Division of Multidisciplinary Studies offers special topics courses (MDS 295. 494, 
495) each of which deals with several arts media or with the arts in connection 
with science and technology; information about these courses, which change each 
year, is available from the Office of Multidisciplinary Studies. 

For students who want to concentrate in Arts Studies, an academic minor is 
available. In addition, there are minors in Theatre, Design, and Film Studies. 
Students may also major in Multidisciplinary Studies with a concentration in 
Arts Studies. This program makes it possible for students to prepare themselves, 
for example, for graduate programs in art conservation or medical illustration. 

Opportunities for students to participate in arts activities include many 
instrumental and choral organizations, student productions in Thompson Thea- 
tre, craft instruction and facilities in the Craft Center, and the exhibitions of the 
Visual Arts Program. These activities, many of which are integrated with aca- 
demic courses, are described in more detail under "Student Activities" in this 
section of the catalog. 

Honors and Scholars Programs 

UNIVERSITY SCHOLARS PROGRAM 

The University Scholars Programs are designed to address the needs of stu- 
dents who are academically successful, highly motivated, and committed to 
excellence and intellectual exploration. Coordinated between the Division of 
Student Affairs, the University Undesignated Program, the School of Design 
and the Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Education and Psychology, 
Engineering, Forest Resources, Humanities and Social Sciences, Management, 
Physical and Mathematical Sciences, and Textiles, the University Scholars Pro- 
grams provide a variety of unique educational experiences for qualified under- 
graduates. Students are invited to participate on the basis of selection criteria 
specific to each school. 



24 



Participants in the University Scholars Programs have the opportunity to 
enroll in sections of academic courses reserved for Scholars. These courses, which 
are taught by distinguished faculty members, encourage the development of a 
learning environment that is richly invigorating and intellectually stimulating. 

Scholars also attend a weekly Forum Series which includes guest speaker 
presentations and discussions on issues of contemporary social and educational 
significance. Through the University Scholars Programs, NCSU Scholars are 
members and participate in the activities of the North Carolina Honors Associa- 
tion, the Southern Regional Honors Council and the National Collegiate Honors 
Council. Extracurricular opportunities and educational field trips are also made 
available to broaden the personal and cultural horizons of participants. In addi- 
tion to these activities, there are specific academic expectations defined by the 
respective schools or colleges. 

For more information contact the Coordinator of University Scholars Pro- 
grams, 102 Sullivan Hall, (919) 515-2353, or the office of the appropriate college 
dean. 

HONORS PROGRAMS 

Honors programs are offered by the academic colleges and individual depart- 
ments. Honors participants benefit from a more individualized and rigorous 
academic program in their major area of interest. At the minimum, nine credit 
hours in courses drawn from at least two of the following three categories are 
required: special courses for honors students, advanced (graduate) courses, and 
independent studies. To successfully complete the program, students must finish 
the designated coursework and achieve an overall grade point average of 3.25 or 
higher. 

Students who complete an honors program are recognized by having an honors 
seal on their diplomas, a "H" beside their names in the commencement program, 
indication of completion of an honors program on their official transcripts, and 
their names in the Honors Convocation program. 

The minimum admission requirement is a 3.0 (B) grade point average over all 
courses and a 3.25 grade point average in their major after at least nine credit 
hours of coursework. Many of the individual programs have higher admission 
requirements. Students who believe they are eligible and are interested in more 
information about honors program opportunities should contact the Associate 
Dean for Academic Affairs of their college or the Director of the University 
Honors Council. 



Scholarships 



UNIVERSITY MERIT AWARDS PROGRAM FOR 
ENTERING FRESHMEN 

NCSU offers a competitive scholarship program for entering freshmen to 
recognize and to encourage exceptional academic ability and achievement. Grad- 
uating seniors of good character and leadership potential who have excelled in 



25 



their high school academic and extracurricular endeavors may apply for a large 
number of merit award opportunities at the University. Financial need is not a 
consideration in the selection of recipients for these awards. 

Each year the Merit Awards Program conducts a nation-wide competition for 
approximately 80 University-wide scholarships (available to students entering 
any academic major) as well as over 125 other scholarships that are offered 
through individual colleges and departments. Completion of the Merit Awards 
Program application packet, which consists of the student's application as well as 
other supporting documents, assures that a student will be considered for all 
available freshman merit awards. The application packet is available by August 
preceding the student's senior year in high school, and the application deadline is 
November 1 of the senior year. 

Semifinalists are identified from the entire applicant pool in mid-January and 
are invited to NCSU for personal interviews. 

The John T. Caldwell Alumni Scholarship, which is sponsored by the NCSU 
Alumni Association, is the University's most prestigious award for entering 
freshmen. At least 30 Caldwell Scholarships valued at $3500/year (up to $14,000 
for four years) for in-state recipients and $7000/year (up to $28,000 for four years) 
for out-of-state recipients are offered each year. This excellent scholarship seeks 
students who demonstrate both academic excellence and strong leadership 
potential. 

Yearly renewal of the Caldwell and the other University-wide renewable 
awards assumes the maintenance of a 3.0 grade point average once a recipient is 
engaged in full-time coursework at the University. 

Many other scholarships ranging from $1000 for the freshman year up to the 
Caldwells are available in each year's competition. 

Students who meet two of the following criteria— 3.75 high school grade point 
average (on a 4.0 scale), top 10% class rank, SAT total score of 1200 or above— 
should request their Merit Awards application packet from: 
Merit Awards Program 
North Carolina State University 
2118 Pullen Hall, Box 7342 
Raleigh, North Carolina 27695-7342 

Telephone inquiries are welcome: (919) 515-3671 

COLLEGE AND DEPARTMENTAL SCHOLARSHIPS 
FOR CONTINUING STUDENTS 

A number of scholarships based upon academic achievement are administered 
directly through some of the academic departments for students engaged in 
full-time coursework at the University. (See the "Colleges, Departments, and 
Programs of Study" section of this catalog). A continuing student should contact 
the college/department of his or her academic major for information about 
specific scholarship opportunities that do not require the filing of financial 
information.

Special Academic Programs 

UNIVERSITY UNDESIGNATED PROGRAM 

The University Undesignated Program, B-3 Nelson Hall, (919) 515-3592, helps 
selected freshmen explore the University's diverse programs of study for up to 36 
credit hours before declaring their academic majors. The staff is responsible for 
academic advising and other activities designed to help enrolled students make 
rational and informed decisions in the selection of the major fields. Currently, 
approximately 200 new freshmen with a minimum expected first-year perfor- 
mance of about 2.4 are admitted each year. University Undesignated freshmen 
are required to enroll in a year-long orientation course specifically designed to 
provide a formal vehicle for the exploration of the many fields of study at the 
University as well as in a specially selected enrichment course. 

UNIVERSITY TRANSITION PROGRAM 

The University Transition Program, B-5E Nelson Hall, (919) 515-7053, serves 
to help selected new freshmen get a good start at NCSU. Approximately 65 
freshmen are admitted to the University through this program. Participants in 
the program are required to attend the second Summer Session, taking carefully 
selected courses as a part of their freshman year. Additionally, as part of their 
first-year experience. University Transition students are enrolled in a one-hour 
course focusing on personal development, study skills, and other areas crucial to 
college success. Individual advising on course selection, personal counseling, and 
tutorial assistance are provided throughout the year. 

University Transition students may begin to select their major field of study 
during the second semester of their freshman year. Participants must transfer 
into a degree program no later than their fifth semester at NCSU. 

COOPERATIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM 

The Cooperative Education Program is designed to be an integral part of a 
student's educational program and is offered in all colleges. The co-op program 
enriches and expands classroom learning by providing sponsored, paid work 
assignments in industry, business and government. Work experience is selected 
based on its relevance to a student's major or career goals and provides for 
alternating semesters of study and full-time work. A parallel plan (part-time 
study and part-time work) is also available as an option in several colleges. Co-op 
participation does not constitute an interruption of college work. 

The co-op experience normally takes place during the sophomore and junior 
years and means that attaining a degree will take more than eight semesters. A 
grade point average of 2.25 is required for students entering this program. 
Freshmen are not eligible, and transfers must first complete at least one semes- 
ter at NCSU. Engineering students must have been admitted to a degree pro- 
gram. To remain in the program, students must maintain a cumulative average 
of 2.0, agree to participate for a minimum of 12 months of full-time work expe- 
rience or its equivalent, and be registered for co-op each work period.

NON-DEGREE CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS 

Non-degree certificate programs are prescribed sets of regular academic 
courses which offer limited but structured continuing education opportunities. 
They are designed expressly for Lifelong Education students. Students enrolled 
in undergraduate or graduate degree programs at NCSU are not eligible to 
participate simultaneously in these certificate programs. Satisfactory comple- 
tion of the prescribed courses is recognized by the issuing of a certificate from the 
department or college that offers that program. 

Certificate programs are currently offered by the following academic units: 
Department of Adult and Community College Education — Studies in Gerontol- 
ogy (PBS students only) and Trainer Development (PBS students only);

THE FIRST YEAR EXPERIENCE 

The First Year Experience helps students make a successful transition to the 
college environment. Freshmen in the program live together in Metcalf Resi- 
dence Hall and participate in a number of special freshmen-oriented programs. 
Such programs include two, one-credit hour orientation courses which examine 
academic and social issues related to college success, "cluster classes" or NCSU 
courses restricted to First Year Experience students, some of which are held in 
Metcalf Residence Hall, and a mentoring program which introduces students to 
caring, resourceful upperclass students and faculty and staff. 

Participation in the First Year Experience is selective and based on potential 
contributions to the program. Admitted students are expected to be actively 
involved. For additional information, contact the Assistant Dean for Under- 
graduate Studies, (919) 515-3037. 

UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES TUTORIAL CENTER 

The Undergraduate Studies Tutorial Center, 126 Nelson Hall, (919) 515-3163, 
is open to any student at NCSU taking 100- or 200-level courses in English, 
foreign languages, math, and science. It provides one-to-one and small group 
tutorials in many entry-level courses. Tutoring sessions focus on study skills and 
learning techniques as well as course content. Tutors are carefully selected for 
their ability to communicate and for their expertise in their subject areas. 
Students agree to meet with tutors on a regular basis once or twice a week and are 
encouraged to begin their participation in tutorials early in the semester and 
continue throughout the semester to assure their chances for academic success at 
NCSU. The program encourages communication between instructors and tutors. 

Supplemental Instruction 

The Undergraduate Studies Tutorial Center also offers Supplemental Instruc- 
tion (SI) for selected sections of chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Students in 
SI sections of these courses can meet with an SI leader for three hours of review 
each week. 

THE PEER MENTOR PROGRAM 

The Peer Mentor Program is a student peer-helper program in which academ- 
ically talented African-American upperclassmen serve as "mentors" to freshmen 
African-American students. The program stresses the mentoring process as a 
positive factor in the successful recruitment, advancement, and graduation of 
African-American students at this University. The Peer Mentor Program assists 
the freshmen in making a successful transition to campus life by providing them 
with a supportive contact person who acts as a sounding board for personal 
adjustment concerns; interprets University policies and procedures; makes 
proper referrals to appropriate University services; and suggests to freshmen 
various strategies for academic, emotional, and social success at NCSU. More- 
over, an integral component of the program is a focus on cultural awareness and 
identity as a means of helping mentors and freshmen to positively affirm their 



29 



skills and capabilities as an African-American on a large, predominantly white 
campus. 

All incoming African-American freshmen are assigned a peer mentor prior to 
their arrival on campus in the fall. Whenever possible, the freshmen are paired 
with upperclassmen who are in the same major or college. Peer mentors are 
trained in "helping skills" and possess a working knowledge of the campus. Thus, 
they play a significant role in fostering in the freshman student a positive 
self-esteem and an appreciation of the potential benefits and rewards of college 
life. 

COOPERATING RALEIGH COLLEGES 

The Cooperating Raleigh Colleges (CRC) is a voluntary organization com- 
prised of NCSU, Meredith College, Peace College, St. Augustine's College, St. 
Mary's College, and Shaw University for the purpose of developing and conduct- 
ing cooperative educational activities. The organization provides the opportunity 
for students to enroll at another institution for a course or courses not offered on 
their home campus. Other activities include a cooperative library arrangement, 
joint student activities, and faculty cooperation and interchange. 

Any NCSU undergraduate degree student who is enrolled in at least eight 
credit hours on the NCSU campus may take a course at another Raleigh college 
during a fall or spring semester (except that men may not enroll in courses at 
Peace College) provided that (a) the course is not taught on the NCSU campus and 
(b) the adviser and dean consider the course educationally desirable. 

Students may not register for more than a total of two courses in any semester 
at other CRC colleges. Under extenuating circumstances, exceptions for an 
additional course registration may be approved by the requesting student's 
school dean. 

Home campus students have first priority in class assignments. Courses taken 
at other institutions may be used as free electives and as alternatives to restricted 
electives, if so approved by the student's adviser and dean. Credits earned in this 
manner may apply toward fulfilling graduation requirements, but grades from 
other CRC institutions are not used in computing a student's NCSU grade point 
average. Under this agreement, regular tuition and fees are paid to NCSU. 
Certain special fees may be required for special courses at other colleges, and the 
student is responsible for paying such fees. During the summer, there is no 
interinstitutional program with local colleges. A student desiring to take a 
summer course must register directly with the institution offering the course. 

Note: Lifelong Education students may not register for courses as interinstitu- 
tional students. 

NATIONAL STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM 

NCSU is one of over 100 colleges and universities in the United States belong- 
ing to the National Student Exchange Program. Each year an opportunity is 
provided for NCSU students to study at one of the other participating schools and 
still pay the same tuition and fees they pay at NCSU, thus avoiding the red tape 
normally associated with a change of school. Students returning from exchange 

30 



reflect an increased feeling of independence, self-reliance and self-confidence, 
and a better appreciation of home region, family and home campus. A major 
impact of the exchange year has been an increased awareness and appreciation 
for the vast differences in ideas and values found in different geographic loca- 
tions. Eligible students must be an undergraduate with a 2.5 grade point average 
or better and be selected by a screening committee. Preference is given to North 
Carolina residents. For further information contact the National Student 
Exchange Office in 2120 Pullen Hall, (919) 515-3499. 

NORTH CAROLINA STATE FELLOWS PROGRAM 

NCSU offers a self-development experience known as the North Carolina State 
Fellows Program. The program is designed to assist outstanding, talented stu- 
dents to develop their leadership potential at an accelerated pace, and to accomp- 
lish this in ways not usually afforded by the University. Each year approximately 
30 new freshmen are selected to participate in the program as Fellows. The 
program seeks to identify students of exceptional ability and motivation and to 
encourage their development as potential leaders for business, governmental, 
educational and other professional communities. The program attempts to fulfill 
its goal by providing training and developmental opportunities. 

International Programs 
and Activities 

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

About 1,200 students from approximately 93 countries attend the University 
and enrich the campus and community. The International Student Office assists 
these students with immigration and passport matters, currency permits, and 
medical, personal, and social concerns. 

International applicants are carefully screened for evidence of English lan- 
guage proficiency, adequate finances, and academic credentials indicating 
excellent potential for success. The minimum TOEFL requirement for admission 
consideration to NCSU is 550 with scores of at least 50 on two sections and no score 
lower than U5. The Lifelong Education Student category is not available to 
persons on temporary visas. The University has authority to issue Forms 1-20 for 
F-1 visas and Forms IAP-66 for J-I visas to fully qualified individuals. 

An orientation program for new international students is conducted during the 
week preceding the fall and spring semesters. 

International students are required to purchase one of the two University 
student insurance policies or provide proof of agency sponsor coverage. Special 
courses in English for Foreign Students (FLE) are required for those whose 
scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) are sufficiently 
high for admission but who need further instruction to perform well aca- 
demically. 



31 



The International Student Committee of the University Student Center spon- 
sors a variety of social and cultural programs for international and American 
students. 

SUMMER INSTITUTE IN ENGLISH FOR SPEAKERS 
OF OTHER LANGUAGES 

The Summer Institute in English for Speakers of Other Languages is a five- 
week, intensive English language program for students from other countries 
who intend to pursue university studies or specialized training programs in the 
United States in the fall. The institute, which is jointly sponsored by the Depart- 
ment of Foreign Languages and Literatures and the Division of Continuing 
Studies, is held from early July to early August each summer. It is designed to 
provide students with intensive instruction and practice in the use of the English 
language. Emphasis is on developing fluency in speaking and understanding oral 
English as well as reading and writing skills. 

The institute also offers orientation to American life and institutions to give 
students insight into life in the United States and to help them to adjust to the new 
environment. There are films, lectures by guest speakers, and field trips on 
weekends to places of historic, cultural, and scenic interest. 

Prospective students should have studied English and acquired some facility in 
the use of the spoken language prior to enrolling in the institute since its curricu- 
lum is not designed for beginners. 

Admission to the institute does not imply admission as a degree candidate at 
NCSU or any other campus of the University of North Carolina System. 

The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is administered to 
students who wish to take it on the last day of the program. Since this is an 
institutional administration of the test, scores may not be sent to other institu- 
tions but are accepted by the Admissions Office and Graduate School at NCSU. 

ALEXANDER INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM 

The Alexander International program is a residence hall community for both 
American and international students. The 174 resident members of the program 
share the common goal of developing their understanding of different cultures 
and countries and developing cross-cultural relationships. The 87 American 
students and the equal number of international students, representing approxi- 
mately 40 foreign countries, become more sensitive to the values of different 
peoples, systems of government, economic structures, and religions. These goals 
are achieved through informal interactions, social and educational program- 
ming, and American and international roommate pairing. 

Program activities in past years have included both an international dinner 
and international coffeehouse series, emphasizing customs, foods, and enter- 
tainment from various cultures. Workshops on cultural differences, cross- 
cultural communication and relationships, international employment opportuni- 
ties, and overseas studies are regularly included in the annual calendar of 
programs and activities. These activities provide an opportunity for American 
students to add an international dimension to their education while attending 
NCSU. 

32 



Participation in this international program is selective and based upon poten- 
tial contributions to the program. Students are expected to be active partici- 
pants, to initiate programming, and to be supportive of the program goals. 
Students interested in applying or wishing additional information should inquire 
at 105 Alexander International Hall, (919) 515-2925. 

STUDY, TRAVEL, AND SHORT-TERM EMPLOYMENT ABROAD 

The Study Abroad Office assists students interested in overseas study and 
travel, short-term employment in foreign countries, and national and interna- 
tional scholarship competitions for study abroad. The staff provides personal and 
group advising, sponsors program presentations and information sessions, con- 
ducts orientation programs, and maintains a resource library. 

Many students participate in study abroad programs sponsored by NCSU, 
other United States colleges and universities, United States educational institu- 
tions, and foreign universities. The Study Abroad Office maintains descriptive 
literature and directories for over 1,000 individual programs. The staff advisors 
will assist students in selecting and evaluating various programs, assist in the 
procedure for approval of academic credit transfer, and suggest basic orientation 
readings and activities. The resource library materials include information on 
grant sources and competitions. These include annual competitions such as Ful- 
bright Grants for graduate study. Marshall Scholarships for graduate study in 
the United Kingdom, Rhodes Scholarships for Oxford University, England, and 
many programs which award specific country or specific academic curriculum 
grants for foreign study. 

Short-term employment and internship positions in a foreign country are also 
available. A program sponsored by the Council on International Educational 
Exchange assists students interested in summer or short-term (3-6 months) 
employment in Great Britain, France, Ireland, Germany, New Zealand, Canada, 
Jamaica, and Costa Rica. InterExchange coordinates similar programs in Aus- 
tralia, Austria, Finland, France, Norway, Switzerland, West Germany and 
Yugoslavia. Both of these programs provide for employment visas and assistance 
in obtaining short-term employment. 

For students interested in summer and vacation period travel, the Study 
Abroad Office can provide assistance in planning a trip. Information is available 
concerning passport and visa applications, low cost accommodations, group 
travel programs, Eurail and other public transportation discount programs. 
International Student Identity Cards, overseas travel arrangements, and back- 
ground information on specific countries. 

Students interested in discussing study, travel, and short-term employment in 
other countries should contact the Study Abroad Office, 2118 Pullen Hall. (919) 
515-2087. 

International Student Exchange Program. NCSU is one of 100 colleges and 
universities in the United States participating in the International Student 
Exchange Program. Through ISEP. undergraduate students may attend any of 
100 member institutions in Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, and Latin 
America on an exchange student basis for a summer semester or single academic 
year. 

33 



NCSU students pay a program fee for their stay abroad which is based on their 
regular tuition and fees plus the cost of room and board at NCSU. Aside from 
travel expenses and health coverage, ISEP makes it possible for NCSU students 
to study outside the country for the same cost of continuing studies at NCSU. This 
arrangement also allows students to maintain their eligibility for financial aid. 
While abroad. ISEP students are entitled to all the benefits and services of 
regular full-time students at their host institutions. Room and board are provided 
and an ISEP coordinator on each campus is available to students for assistance 
with any problem. 

To apply to participate in ISEP at NCSU a student should have a cumulative 
grade point average of at least 2.75 and have already studied at NCSU for two 
semesters. Applicants must be proficient in the language of instruction at the 
study sites they choose. A campus selection committee, made up of faculty 
members, chooses those applicants as NCSU's participants. Applicants are not in 
competition with each other. The ISEP Selection Committee bases its decision on 
the feasibility of each applicant's proposed course of study, on academic back- 
ground, application and references. The selection process for each academic year 
takes place in the winter of the preceding year. Students begin the application 
process by requesting a copy of the ISEP Directory from the Study Abroad 
Office. 

Semester in Santander, Spain. The University of North Carolina at Charlotte 
and NCSU, in cooperation with the University of Cantabria. offer a Fall Semes- 
ter Abroad program in Spain. Undergraduates from both North Carolina insti- 
tutions, as well as qualified students from other institutions, spend a semester in 
the coastal city of Santander, taking classes in Spanish language, literature, art,

FRESHMAN ADMISSION 

Admission to the University is competitive, and it is possible to be admissible to 
some programs but not to all programs at NCSU. Applicants are asked to 
indicate their first, second and third choices for a curriculum, including unde- 
clared majors within a college, or to indicate their choice of participating in the 

35 



University Undesignated Program. Applications which are not admissible in the 
first curriculum choice will be reviewed for admissibility in the alternate curric- 
ulum choices. Transfer between programs after a successful first year may be 
possible. 

The admissions decision is based on the evaluation of the high school record, 
including the level and difficulty of the courses taken, the overall grade point 
average, rank in class, and scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the 
American College Testing Program (ACT). These factors are reviewed with the 
curriculum choice to determine admissibility as a freshman at NCSU. Any 
exceptions to University admissions requirements must be approved by the 
faculty members of the University Undergraduate Admissions Committee. 

In addition, the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina System 
has determined that the minimum undergraduate admissions requirements for 
all constituent institutions, including NCSU, shall be: 

—A high school diploma or its equivalent 

—English— four course units in English, emphasizing grammar, composition, 
and literature 

— Mathematics — three course units in math, including algebra I, algebra II, 
and geometry, or a higher level math course for which Algebra II is a 
prerequisite 

—Social Studies— two course units in social studies, including one unit in 
United States history 

— Science — three course units in science, including at least one unit in a life or 
biological science; at least one unit in a physical science (for example, physi- 
cal science, chemistry, or physics) and at least one laboratory course. 
Further, it is recommended that prospective students complete at least two 
course units in one foreign language. Beginning in the fall of 199Jt, two years of the 
same foreign language will be required of all incoming freshmen. It is recom- 
mended that every student take one foreign language course and one mathemat- 
ics course in the twelfth grade. Any additional entrance requirements for admis- 
sion to NCSU will be set forth in the Freshman Admissions Bulletin for that year. 

Applicants are accepted on either junior or senior test scores, although senior 
scores are recommended, especially if the applicant is also applying for financial 
aid or scholarships. An interview is not required and does not weigh in the 
admissions decision; a prospective student is always welcome to visit the Admis- 
sions Office, 112 Peele Hall. The Admissions Office conducts group information 
sessions every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10:30 a.m. and on Tuesday and 
Thursday at 1:30 p.m. Campus tours led by students are conducted each weekday, 
weather permitting, at 12:15 p.m., starting at the Memorial Bell Tower.

Achievement Tests 

Freshman students must present Mathematics Achievement Test scores to 
ensure proper math placement at NCSU. Students in curricula for which the 
normal first mathematics course is calculus should take the Level II test. Stu- 
dents in all other curricula should take the Level I test. Current admissions 
information and the application contain information about appropriate 
achievement tests for each curriculum. 

The English Achievement Test is recommended for more accurate placement 
in beginning English classes. 

Advanced Placement 

A student may qualify for advanced placement by one or more of the following 
means: (1) by passing a proficiency examination administered by a teaching 
department at NCSU; (2) by attaining a sufficient predicted grade in English 
(PGE) which is based on the SAT Verbal score or English Achievement Test and 
the high school record, including grade point average and class rank; (3) by 
attaining a score of 600 or higher on the verbal portion of the SAT; (4) by meeting 
a specific minimum score on certain of the CEEB Advanced Placement Program 
(APP) examinations; and (5) by attaining at least a minimum score (generally 3) 
on certain of the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject tests. 

OUT-OF-STATE STUDENTS 

Undergraduate applicants from outside North Carolina may be required to 
meet more competitive standards for admission than North Carolina residents. 
NCSU is limited to accepting not more than 18 percent of total new undergradu- 
ate students from outside the State. 

37 



TRANSFER STUDENTS 

NCSU welcomes transfer applicants, and in recent years, more than 25 percent 
of our graduates started their college programs at other institutions. A transfer 
student should present at least 28 semester hours (or 42 quarter hours) of satisfac- 
tory (C or better) college-level work with a minimum overall 2.0 (C) average on all 
college work attempted and be eligible to return to the last institution regularly 
attended. Most programs require a higher minimum grade point average for 
admission. Individual official transcripts must be submitted from each institu- 
tion attended. The college credits must have been earned at a regionally accre- 
dited institution and must include a college-level math and a college-level Eng- 
lish course. Applications of students from non-regionally accredited institutions 
will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. 

Students who graduated from high school in June of 1988 or later must submit 
a high school record to verify that they have met minimum admissions require- 
ments as outlined in the Freshman Admissions section of this catalog. Exceptions 
to this requirement are students who will have earned an A. A., A.S. or A.F.A. 
degree before enrolling at NCSU. Individuals who do not have the minimum 
admissions requirements at the high school level must complete at the college 
level six semester hours or nine quarter hours each of English, mathematics, 
science and social science to be eligible to transfer. 

Applications from technical institutes, technical colleges, and technical pro- 
grams at community colleges are evaluated on an individual basis. Credits from 
such programs are generally not considered for automatic transfer, but qualified 
students who are otherwise admissible may receive transfer credit by prescribed 
procedures. These procedures include credit by examination and/or validation 
by the appropriate subject matter academic unit on the NCSU campus. 

Once applicants have been accepted and have indicated their intention to 
enroll, their transcripts are evaluated by the college to which application is made 
to determine the exact amount of credit applicable toward a degree at NCSU. A 
grade of C or better is required before a course may be considered for credit. 
Transcripts are not evaluated until the applicant has been admitted. Interna- 
tional students are carefully screened for evidence of English language profi- 
ciency, adequate financial backing and academic credentials indicating poten- 
tial for success. 

UNCLASSIFIED STUDENTS 

Unclassified students are those working for college credit but not enrolled in a 
degree-granting program. Admission as an unclassified student requires the 
recommendation of the dean of the school in which the student wishes to enroll. 
Unclassified students must meet the same entrance requirements as regular 
degree students and must meet the same academic requirement to continue. If, at 
a later date, unclassified students wish to change to regular status, their credits 
will be evaluated in terms of the requirements of their intended curriculum. 



38 



LIFELONG EDUCATION STUDENTS 

The Lifelong Education student classification is designed for residents of the 
Triangle area who have not been formally admitted into a degree program at the 
University but who wish to enroll in courses offered by the University. Lifelong 
Education students are limited to a maximum course load of two courses plus one 
physical education course each semester or summer session. 

Lifelong Education student applications should be made through the Office of 
Adult Credit Programs & Summer Sessions, at the McKimmon Center, corner of 
Western Boulevard and Gorman Street. If Lifelong Education students wish to 
become degree candidates at a later date, they must make application through 
the Admissions Office. Lifelong Education students who are considering a 
degree program are encouraged to make an appointment with the Admissions 
Office to discuss entrance requirements. 

SERVICEMEN'S OPPORTUNITY COLLEGES 

NCSU has been designated as a member of the Servicemen's Opportunity 
Colleges (SOC) General Registry— a network of institutions sponsored by the 
American Association of State Colleges and Universities and the American 
Association of Community and Junior Colleges. Servicemen are encouraged to 
take college level courses offered by accredited institutions and made available to 
military personnel through SOC. Records are evaluated, files are retained, coun- 
seling is provided, and recognition is given for learning through noninstitutional 
sources when appropriate. Transcripts must be sent to the Director of Admis- 
sions directly from the institution offering the course. 

COLLEGE LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP) 

A national program administered by the College Board, CLEP is a series of 
examinations that allows students to show knowledge in a wide range of areas. 
The tests are used to grant credit for corresponding college courses. There are 
five General and 30 Subject Examinations. At NCSU credit is granted primarily 
for Subject Examinations, as these provide a more satisfactory evaluation of 
subject matter covered in NCSU courses. Scores and essays, if required, are 
reviewed and credit granted by the department offering the corresponding 
course. 

Information regarding credit and testing dates and locations can be obtained 
in the Counseling Center, 2000 Harris Hall, (919) 515-2423. 

Both General and Subject Examinations at NCSU are administered during 
the third calendar line of each month except December and February. It is 
necessary to register for the examinations at least three weeks before the first of 
the week in which they are to be given. The examinations are administered 
through the Counseling Center at North Carolina Central University, Durham, 
North Carolina, (919) 683-6336.

GRADUATE STUDENTS 

Procedures and policies governing graduate admission are outlined in a separ- 
ate catalog issued by the Graduate School. For a copy of the Graduate Catalog 
write: 

Dean of the Graduate School 

104 Peele Hall 

Box 7102 

North Carolina State University 

Raleigh, North Carolina 27695-7102 

Orientation 

The University provides a series of orientation programs for all new freshmen. 
Students attend their program with other freshmen who have been admitted to 
the same college, the University Undesignated Program, or the University Tran- 
sition Program. Meetings and conferences with faculty and student leaders 
acquaint new students with the academic opportunities and expectations asso- 
ciated with their chosen curriculum and with the extracurricular activities and 
organizations available on campus. For more information, contact the Division of 
Undergraduate Studies, B-26 Nelson Hall, (919) 515-3037, or the Department of 
Student Development, 2007 Harris Hall, (919) 515-2443. 

REQUIRED IMMUNIZATION DOCUMENTATION 

North Carolina state law requires all new enrollees in the university system to 
present proof of immunization prior to completion of registration. 

Verified proof of immunization against rubella, measles, tetanus and diphthe- 
ria must be presented to the University Student Health Service no later than 30 
days prior to registration. 

If this requirement is not met, dismissal from school is mandatory under the 
law. For assistance, contact the Student Health Service, (919) 515-2563. 



Registration 



Registration is conducted by using the Telephonic Registration Access to 
Computerized Scheduling (TRACS) system. This system allows students to use 
any touch-tone telephone to register for classes. A Schedule of Courses is avail- 
able for every semester prior to the beginning of the registration period. This 
contains all necessary instructions for completing registration. 

Registration consists of three steps: (1) meeting with advisers to determine 
course requirements and to obtain a Personal Identification Number (PIN); (2) 
registering for courses using the TRACS system; and (3) paying tuition and fees 
and all other debts to the University by the established deadlines. Instructions for 
completing registration are issued each semester and summer session.

For more information, contact the Department of Registration and Records, 
1000 Harris Hall, (919) 515-2572. 

INTERINSTITUTIONAL REGISTRATION 

A regularly enrolled undergraduate degree student who is enrolled in at least 
eight credit hours at NCSU may take, under certain conditions, course work at 
one of the Raleigh colleges, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, at 
the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, or at Duke University. Interin- 
stitutional registration forms and all registration procedures are available from 
the Department of Registration and Records. 

SCHEDULE CHANGES-DROPS AND ADDS 

Courses may be added during the first two weeks of a regular semester. All 
courses may be dropped without regard to course load during the first two weeks 
of a regular semester. During the third and fourth weeks of a semester, full-time 
undergraduate students who wish to drop courses at any level and whose aca- 
demic load would thereby fall below the twelve-hour minimum course load may 
do so only for documented medical reasons or other verified, unforeseen grounds 
of personal or family hardship. 

For undergraduate students, exceptions to the drop policies require the 
recommendation of a student's adviser (or the departmental coordinator of advis- 
ing or the department head) and approval by the student's dean. Students who 
wish to drop all courses for which they are enrolled, must withdraw from the 
University for the remainder of the semester or summer term in which they are 
enrolled. A degree student who finds it necessary to drop all courses will initiate 
withdrawal from the University at the Counseling Center, 2000 Harris Hall. 



Tuition and Fees 

North Carolina Resident— $659.00 per semester 

Nonresident— $3,951.00 per semester 

A statement of tuition and fees is mailed to each preregistered student before 
the beginning of any term. The statement must be returned with full payment or 
complete financial assistance information by the due date appearing on the 
statement. Normally the due date is two weeks before classes begin. Non- 
preregistered students are required to pay their tuition and fees at registration. 
Fees are the same for both residents and nonresidents and are required of all 
students. Nonresident students are required to pay an additional $3,292 per 
semester for tuition.

EXPENSES OTHER THAN TUITION AND GENERAL FEES 

Application Fee: A non-refundable fee of $35 must accompany each application 
for admission. 

Room Rent: New incoming students receive room reservation instructions in the 
letter of acceptance. Continuing students are provided a card with instructions 
at their residence hall rooms. The 1992-93 charge for room rent ranged from 
$725 per semester for most residence halls to $990 for North Hall. Wood Hall, 
and Watauga Hall. 

Meals: During their first academic year, new freshmen electing to reside on 
campus are required to participate in one of the University's available meal 
plans. Meal plan costs in 1992-93 ranged from $800 to $950. Other students pay 
for meals individually at the various dining facilities available both on and 
near the campus. 

Books and Supplies: Books and supplies are usually purchased during the first 
week of classes directly from the Students Supply Stores. Allow approximately 
$250 per semester for purchasing books and supplies. 

Personal Expenses: Personal expenses vary widely among students but the esti- 
mate of $500 is based on what students report that they spend on these items. 

Administrative Management Fee: A special administrative management fee of 
$250 per semester and $150 per summer session is required from a contracting 
agency sponsoring international students whose programs are coordinated 
through the University's Office of International Visitors. 

Cooperative Education Program Fee: Required of all participating co-op students 
for each semester in which they are enrolled in an off-campus work assign- 
ment. This fee, set at $188 for the 1992 fall semester, the 1993 spring semester, 
or the combined 1993 summer sessions, is used for partial support of the 
Cooperative Education Program staff in job development and placement activ- 
ities. Students paying this fee are entitled to all University services, facilities, 
and programs during the semester or combined summer sessions for which 
they are enrolled. 

College of Engineering Computing Fee: All students enrolled in the College of 
Engineering, both graduate and undergraduate, will be billed a $100 per 

42 



semester fee to support the Engineering Computing Facility. Payment of the 
fee will provide students with access to standalone workstations which com- 
prise the Engineering Computing Facility. 

Students who enroll in a co-op work session will not be billed for the Comput- 
ing Fee unless they also enroll in NCSU courses. 
Fees Related to Laboratory and Computer Courses: Students enrolled in desig- 
nated lab or computer courses must pay a course fee of $25 to offset partially the 
cost of necessary supplies, equipment, and operation. The maximum course fee 
to be charged to any student will be $50 per semester or summer session 
regardless of the number of designated courses taken. These fees will be 
assessed for courses carried at the end of the official enrollment period, i.e., the 
end of the second week of a semester or the end of the fourth class day during a 
summer session. 

Departments may waive a course fee when: students are auditing a desig- 
nated course in which the conditions of the audit preclude any usage of lab or 
computing resources; or students in special projects, independent research, 
and similar courses which have a designated fee, are not using a University lab 
course but who mistakenly are registered for the lab section; or students are 
taking only the lecture portion of a designated lab course but are mistakenly 
registered for the lab section. 

Departments may not waive a course fee when: a designated lab or computer 
fee course is dropped after the official enrollment date, or withdrawal from the 
University occurs after the official enrollment date, or state law or policy allows 
for a waiver of tuition (i.e., faculty/staff, over 65 years of age, exchange pro- 
grams, etc.). 

Students who withdraw from the University after the official enrollment date 
may petition the Fee Appeals Committee, and refunds of course fees will be 
handled on a prorated basis as are refunds of other fees. 

Note: All charges are subject to change without notice. 

REQUIRED FEES 

Required fees are levied for services, facilities, and programs available to all 
students whether or not the student takes advantage of them. Students are 
assessed fees based on the course load they are taking. An itemization of required 
fees and other detailed information concerning expenses or related data can be 
obtained by contacting the University Cashier's Office, NCSU, Box 7213, 
Raleigh, North Carolina 27695-7213, (919) 515-2986. 

REFUND POLICY 

A student who officially withdraws from school during the first two weeks of 
classes will receive a tuition and fees refund of the full amount paid less a $25 
registration fee. After the two-week period, no refunds will be made. In some 
instances, circumstances justify the waiving of rules regarding refunds. An 
example might be withdrawal because of sickness. Students have the privilege of 
appeal to the Fee Appeals Committee when they believe special consideration is 
merited. However, no refunds are granted after the first six weeks of a semester, 

43 



regardless of the reason causing the withdrawal, since full institutional costs will 
have been incurred. Applications for such appeals may be obtained from the 
University Cashier's Office, 1101 Pullen Hall. 

RESIDENCE STATUS FOR TUITION PURPOSES 

The basis for determining the appropriate tuition charge rests upon whether a 
student is a resident or a nonresident for tuition purposes. Each student must 
make a statement as to the length of his or her residence in North Carolina, with 
assessment by the institution of that statement to be conditioned by the following. 

Residence. To qualify as a resident for tuition purposes, a person must become 
a legal resident and remain a legal resident for at least 12 months immediately 
prior to classification. Thus, there is a distinction between legal residence and 
residence for tuition purposes. Furthermore, 12 months legal residence means 
more than simple abode in North Carolina. In particular, it means maintaining a 
domicile (permanent home of indefinite duration) as opposed to "maintaining a 
mere temporary residence or abode incident to enrollment in an institution of 
higher education." The burden of establishing facts which justify classification of 
a student as a resident entitled to in-state tuition rates is on the applicant for such 
classification, who must show his or her entitlement by the preponderance (the 
greater part) of the residentiary information. 

Initiative. Being classified a resident for tuition purposes is contingent on the 
student's seeking such status and providing all information that the institution 
may require in making the determination. 

Parents' Domicile. If an individual, irrespective of age. has living parent(s) or 
court-appointed guardian of the person, the domicile of such parent(s) or 
guardian is, prima facie, the domicile of the individual; but this prima facie 
evidence of the individual's domicile may or may not be sustained by other 
information. Further, nondomiciliary status of parents is not deemed prima facie 
evidence of the applicant child's status if the applicant has lived (though not 
necessarily legally resided) in North Carolina for the five years preceding enroll- 
ment or re-registration. 

Effect of Marriage. Marriage alone does not prevent a person from becoming 
or continuing to be a resident for tuition purposes, nor does marriage in any 
circumstance insure that a person will become or continue to be a resident for 
tuition purposes. Marriage and the legal residence of one's spouse are, however, 
relevant information in determining residentiary intent. Furthermore, if both a 
husband and his wifeare legal residents of North Carolina and if oneof them has 
been a legal resident longer than the other, then the longer duration may be 
claimed by either spouse in meeting the 12-month requirement of in-state tuition 
status. 

Military Personnel. A North Carolinian who serves outside the State in the 
armed forces does not lose North Carolina domicile simply by reason of such 
service. Students from the military may prove retention or establishment of 
residence by reference, as in other cases, to residentiary acts accompanied by 
residentiary intent. 

In addition, a separate North Carolina statute affords tuition rate benefits to 
certain military personnel and their dependents even though not qualifying for 

44 



the in-state tuition rate by reason of 12 months legal residence in North Carolina. 
Members of the armed services, while stationed in and concurrently living in 
North Carolina, may be charged a tuition rate lower than the out-of-state tuition 
rate to the extent that the total of entitlements for application tuition costs 
available from the federal government, plus certain amounts based under a 
statutory formula upon the in-state tuition rate, is a sum less than the out-of-state 
tuition rate for the pertinent enrollment. A dependent relative of a service 
member stationed in North Carolina is eligible to be charged the in-state tuition 
rate while the dependent relative is living in North Carolina with the service 
member and if the dependent relative has met any requirement of the Selective 
Service System applicable to the dependent relative. These tuition benefits may 
be enjoyed only if the applicable requirements for admission have been met; these 
benefits alone do not provide the basis for receiving those derivative benefits 
under the provisions of the residence classification statute reviewed elsewhere in 
this summary. 

Grace Period. If a person (1) has been a bona fide legal resident, (2) has 
consequently been classified a resident for tuition purposes, and (3) has subse- 
quently lost North Carolina legal residence while enrolled at a public institution 
of higher education, that person may continue to enjoy the in-state tuition rate for 
a grace period of twelve months measured from the date on which North Carolina 
legal residence was lost. If the twelve months ends during an academic term for 
which the person is enrolled at a state institution of higher education, the grace 
period extends, in addition, to the end of that term. The fact of marriage to one 
who continues domiciled outside North Carolina does not by itself cause loss of 
legal residence marking the beginning of the grace period. 

Minors. Minors (persons under 18 years of age) usually have the domicile of 
their parents, but certain special cases are recognized by the residence classifica- 
tion statute in determining residence for tuition purposes. 

(1) If a minor's parents live apart, the minor's domicile is deemed to be North 
Carolina for the time period(s) that either parent, as a North Carolina legal 
resident, may claim and does claim the minor as a tax dependent, even if other 
law or judicial act assigns the minor's domicile outside North Carolina. A minor 
thus deemed to be a legal resident will not, upon achieving majority before 
enrolling at an institution of higher education, lose North Carolina legal resi- 
dence if that person (a) upon becoming an adult "acts, to the extent that the 
person's degree of actual emancipation permits, in a manner consistent with 
bonafide legal residence in North Carolina" and (b) "begins enrollment at an 
institution of higher education not later than the fall academic term following 
completion of education prerequisite to admission at such institution." 

(2) If a minor has lived for five or more consecutive years with relatives (other 
than parents) who are domiciled in North Carolina and if the relatives have 
functioned during this time as if they were personal guardians, the minor will be 
deemed a resident for tuition purposes for an enrolled term commencing imme- 
diately after at least five years in which these circumstances have existed. If 
under this consideration a minor is deemed to be a resident for tuition purposes 
immediately prior to his or her eighteenth birthday, that person on achieving 
majority will be deemed a legal resident of North Carolina of at least 12 months 



45 



duration. This provision acts to confer in-state tuition status even in the face of 
other provisions of law to the contrary: however, a person deemed a resident of 12 
months duration pursuant to this provision continues to be a legal resident of the 
state only so long as he or she does not abandon North Carolina domicile. 

Lost but Regained Domicile. If a student ceases enrollment at or graduates 
from an institution of higher education while classified a resident for tuition 
purposes and then both abandons and reacquires North Carolina domicile within 
a 12-month period, that person, if he or she continues to maintain the required 
domicile into re-enrollment at an institution of higher education, may re-enroll at 
the in-state tuition rate without having to meet the usual 12-month duration 
requirement. However, any one person may receive the benefit of this provision 
only once. 

Change of Status. A student admitted to initial enrollment in an institution (or 
permitted to re-enroll following an absence from the institutional program which 
involved a formal withdrawal from enrollment) must be classified by the admit- 
ting institution either as a resident or as a nonresident for tuition purposes prior 
to actual enrollment. A residence status classification once assigned (and final- 
ized pursuant to any appeal properly taken) may be changed thereafter (with 
corresponding change in billing rates) only at intervals corresponding with the 
established primary divisions of the academic year. 

Transfer Students. When a student transfers from one North Carolina public 
institution of higher education to another, he or she is treated as a new student by 
the institution to which he or she is transferring and must be assigned an initial 
residence status classification for tuition purposes. 

Note: General Statute (G.S.) 1 1 6-H3. 1 is the prevailing statute governing residence 
status classification. Copies of the applicable law and of the implementing regula- 
tions are available for inspection in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 112 
Peele Hall. 



Financial Aid 



To be considered for assistance by the Financial Aid Office, a student and his or 
her parents must complete an application approved by the federal government 
and submit this application to the designated processing center for evaluation of 
the family's ability to pay for educational expenses. This form, referred to as a 
"need analysis" form, is available from both high school guidance counselors and 
from the NCSU Financial Aid Office. The need analysis form generally pre- 
ferred by NCSU is the Financial Aid Form (FAF), which should be completed 
preferably by March 1 of the year prior to fall semester enrollment. By complet- 
ing this form, all undergraduates will be given consideration for the federal Pell 
Grant and other forms of federal financial assistance, as well as most types of 
state and institutional financial aid (except for departmental and merit awards). 
Transfer and continuing students should check with the Financial Aid Office 
regarding any other information which may be needed for aid consideration. 

Awards are made to applicants on the basis of financial need, satisfactory 
academic progress, and timely submission of the FAF to Princeton, New Jersey. 

46 



Determination of a student's need is based on estimated educational costs and a 
consideration of the family's financial strength, which primarily includes con- 
sideration of the family's income, including the student's income, size of family, 
number of children in post-secondary institutions, family assets (except for home, 
farm and business) and other resources that may be available for use such as 
veterans' benefits, Vocational Rehabilitation assistance, etc. 

Aid is available on a non-discriminatory basis to all qualifying students. These 
awards are usually offered in financial aid "packages" which consist of a combi- 
nation of scholarship gift aid (grants), loan, and/or work-study award, depending 
upon the degree of need. Continuing students must have a satisfactory record of 
academic progress in order to renew their aid. The Policy on Satisfactory Aca- 
demic Progress for Financial Aid Eligibility is available in the Financial Aid 
Office. A new need analysis form must be submitted each year for continued 
consideration for assistance. 

NEED-BASED SCHOLARSHIPS FOR FRESHMEN 
AND CONTINUING STUDENTS 

There are a large number of special scholarships which are based upon both 
demonstrated financial need and academic achievement. These scholarships are 
administered by the University's Financial Aid Office as well as by various 
academic departments on campus. Some of these scholarships have curricular, 
geographic and other restrictions. A list of these scholarships and the specific 
criteria which may apply to them may be found in the handbook published by the 
NCSU Financial Aid Office. Filing the Financial Aid Form by early March will 
assure the student is considered for all need-based scholarships for which he/she 
is eligible. 

GRANTS 

Pell Grants— All applicants for financial aid who have never received a bache- 
lor's degree are considered for this program. Eligibility for a Pell Grant is 
determined by the federal government, based on the information provided on the 
FAF. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants— These grants are made 
from federal funds to undergraduate students from low-income families. They 
are especially useful in assisting very needy students who apply for assistance. 
These grants are determined by the University's Financial Aid Office. 

Minority Presence Grants — Under the Board of Governors' general Minority 
Presence Grant Program, African-American students may be eligible for special 
financial assistance if they are residents of North Carolina, enrolled for at least 
six hours of degree credit coursework and demonstrate financial need. 

The N.C. Student Incentive Grant— This program provides grants to legal 
residents of North Carolina with substantial need. Grants range up to $1,500 per 
academic year. Since funds are extremely limited, generally only early appli- 
cants are awarded these grants. These funds are awarded by the College 
Foundation. 



47 



ATHLETIC GRANTS-IN-AID 

Athletic awards are made by the Department of Athletics to students who meet 
the established qualifications for such awards. These awards are based upon 
athletic ability rather than upon need. 

LOANS 

Perkins Loans (formerly National Direct Student Loans)— Both under- 
graduate and graduate students carrying at least half-time academic loads may 
be awarded these long-term, low-interest loans. These loans are need-based. Six 
months after ceasing to be enrolled at least half-time, a student must begin 
paying interest on his or her loan at 5% per year as well as assuming a $30 per 
month minimum repayment obligation. In order to establish a repayment sche- 
dule, borrowers are expected to have exit interviews at the Student Accounts 
Office just prior to graduation or other termination of studies. 

Institutional Loans— A limited amount of other long-term loan money is 
available in several funds, and these loans are on essentially the same liberal 
terms as the Perkins Loans. 
Insured Student Loan Programs. 

Robert T. Stafford Loan Program (formerly Guaranteed Student Loan): These 
low interest, deferred payment funds are federal need-based assistance. The 
interest rate is variable but will not exceed 9%. Application for this program 
begins with the FAF. Further application is necessary through the individual 
lender and requires college certification of eligibility. The North Carolina 
lending agency is College Foundation, Inc., (919) 821-477L 
Supplemental Loan for Students (SLS) 
Unsubsidized Stafford Loans 
Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) 
These loan programs are designed for independent students (SLS) and for par- 
ents of dependent students (PLUS). These programs are not need-based. Pay- 
ment options, along with interest rates, will vary but not exceed 11% for SLS and 
10% for PLUS. Application requires college certification and is then submitted to 
the individual lender. The North Carolina lending agency is College Foundation, 
Inc., (919) 821-4771. 

Emergency Short-Term Loans — These loans are available in small amounts 
(usually not exceeding $100) to enable any full-time enrolled student with a 
previous good repayment record to meet unexpected expenses. These loans are 
usually to be repaid within 30 days and are not extended beyond the end of a term 
or graduation. 

COLLEGE WORK-STUDY PROGRAM 

The federally supported College Work-Study Program provides jobs on cam- 
pus for students who qualify with need in the same manner as is required for 
scholarship or long-term loan assistance. Though individual pay rates vary with 
the job, basic hourly pay rates comply with the current minimum wage 
requirements. 



48 



STUDENT EMPLOYMENT SERVICE 

The Financial Aid Office coordinates an employment service to assist students 
with information about the possibilities of part-time or summer work. No partic- 
ular academic or economic qualifications are required to obtain jobs on or off 
campus outside the College Work-Study Program. A current listing of job open- 
ings is maintained at the Financial Aid Office. 

A handbook which gives a detailed explanation of the need-based aid applica- 
tion and award process and the types of aid available may be obtained upon 
request from the Financial Aid Office, 2005 Harris Hall. 



Student Housing 



NCSU furnishes housing for approximately 7,106 students. The University 
operates residence halls which house 3,832 male and 2,409 female students. In 
addition, 295 apartments are available for married students, single parents and 
graduate students in E. S. King Village, and 15 University-owned fraternity and 
sorority houses accommodate 570 student members. 

RESIDENCE HALLS 

The residence halls are operated to provide opportunities, through a variety of 
group living experiences, which complement and expand the students' educa- 
tional experiences. Each hall is staffed with selected graduate and undergradu- 
ate students who report directly to professionally trained members of the 
Department of Housing and Residence Life. Staff members are available to help 
students initiate programs and activities and to advise and assist residents as 
needed. 

The residence halls are grouped into three areas — East, Central and West 
Campus — with each of the areas providing laundry facilities, convenience stores 
and recreational grass areas for sports. Living arrangements in the halls vary 
and include buildings with suites of four or five rooms that share a bath and 
buildings with rooms opening onto a center corridor. Opportunities for either 
single gender or coeducational living arrangements are available. Rooms are 
furnished with a desk, chair, dresser, bed and mattress, small closet, and waste- 
basket for each student, but students must provide bed linen, pillows, and towels. 

Eligibility. To be eligible for University housing one must enroll as a regular 
full-time student (an undergraduate must carry a minimum of 12 credit hours 
per semester). 

NCSU guarantees on-campus housing for the first year to all new freshmen. 
During the second semester of the freshman year, all resident freshmen partici- 
pate in a Random Selection Process which determines housing eligibility for 
subsequent years. Students selected during this process are guaranteed housing 
for their remaining three years. Other upperclass students, including graduate, 
transfer, and readmitted students are not guaranteed campus housing, but are 
housed on a space available basis. 



49 



Room Costs and Reservations. The room cost for 1992-1993 was $725 per 
semester for main-campus double rooms; this rate is subject to change on an 
annual basis. 

Cancellation of Housing. Cancellation of housing applications must be made 
in leriting as follows: 

a. in person at the Housing Assignments Office, Department of Housing and 
Residence Life. 1112 Pullen Hall, Monday through Friday between 8:00 
a.m. and 5:00 p.m.; or 

b. by mail addressed to the Housing Assignments Office, Department of 
Housing and Residence Life, Box 7315, NCSU. Raleigh, North Carolina 
27695-7315. 

The effective date of cancellation is the date notification is received by the 
Housing Assignments Office or the date the room is vacated, whichever is later. 

APARTMENTS FOR MARRIED STUDENTS, SINGLE PARENTS, 
AND GRADUATE STUDENTS 

The University operates 295 apartments in E. S. King Village for students with 
families, single parents and graduate students. The 1992-1993 rental was $240 
for a studio, $250 for a one-bedroom, and $275 for a two-bedroom apartment 
including water only (gas is included in studio units). This rate is subject to 
change on an annual basis. Information on availability and applications should be 
requested from Housing Assignments Office, 1112 Pullen Hall, Department of 
Housing and Residence Life, Box 7315, Raleigh, North Carolina 27695-7315. 

OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING 

Raleigh has a variety of privately owned apartments and houses available for 
rent to University students. A partial listing is located in the Housing Assign- 
ments Office, 1112 Pullen Hall. No listing is published because of the rapid 
turnover. 

The University does not operate a trailer parking area; however, privately 
owned parks are available within a reasonable distance of the campus. 

FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES 

Twenty of the 25 general college fraternities and four of the eight general 
college sororities chartered at the University maintain chapter houses. Thirteen 
of the fraternities and two of the sororities are housed on Fraternity Court, a 
University-owned project; the remaining fraternities and sororities are located 
throughout the immediate community. 

Rental fees vary in fraternity and sorority houses depending on the individual 
chapter, but are approximately the same as the residence hall rates.

Academic Policies and 
Procedures 

ACADEMIC ADVISING 

Every regularly enrolled student is assigned for academic advising to a faculty 
member who is normally a member of the department which is, or is most likely 
to become, the student's major department. 

Responsibilities of the Student 

Students have the primary responsibility for planning their individual pro- 
grams and meeting graduation requirements. This involves: (1) keeping up-to- 
date with University, school, and departmental curricular requirements 
through materials available from the faculty advisers or departmental coordina- 
tor of advising; (2) keeping informed of academic deadlines and changes in 
academic policies; and (3) consulting with the faculty adviser or departmental 
coordinator of advising during each registration period, following notification of 
academic warning status, and at other times as needed. 

Responsibilities of the Faculty Adviser 

Although students have the primary responsibility for planning their pro- 
grams, faculty advisers are expected to: (1) be available for conferences at 
appropriate times and places about which their advisees have been informed; (2) 
provide accurate information about academic regulations and procedures, 
course prerequisites, and graduation requirements; (3) assist students in plan- 
ning academic programs suited to their interests and abilities and their career 
objectives; (4) discuss with their advisees appropriate course choices in fulfilling 
curriculum requirements as well as possible consequences of various alternative 
course choices: (5) inform their advisees when the advisee's proposed course 
selections conflict with University academic or curricular regulations; (6) assist 
advisees with following proper procedures for such things as exceptions to the 
course drop deadlines, auditing a course before or after taking it for credit, 
taking a course under the credit by examination policy, registering for 19 or more 
credit hours, registering for CRC interinstitutional courses, or repeating a course 
previously passed; (7) refer their advisees for special testing or counseling as 
needed; and (8) assist their advisees in considering the appropriateness of aca- 
demic adjustments where these become necessary in cases of serious injury or 
illness. 

Responsibilities of the Coordinator of Advising 

Each college or department has a coordinator of advising who is responsible 
for: (1) assigning, training, and supervising faculty advisers; (2) providing up-to- 
date, printed course and curriculum information for advisers and students; (3) 
reassigning to another adviser any student who so requests; and (4) assisting any 
student who wants to major in the coordinator's area of study but is ineligible at 

51 



the time to transfer into it. Students in this category keep their adviser in the 
department in which they are enrolled but consult additionally with the coordi- 
nator of advising for the department offering the curriculum in which they wish 
to enroll. Whenever appropriate, the coordinator will advise students that they 
should consider alternative curricula. 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Regular undergraduate degree students are classified at the beginning of each 
semester and summer session. The required number of hours of each classifica- 
tion is: 

Classification Semester Hours of Earned Credit 

Freshman (FR) Fewer than 28 

Sophomore (SO) 28 or more, but fewer than 60 

Junior (JR) 60 or more, but fewer than 92 

Senior (SR) 92 or more 

Agricultural Institute students are designated as first (01) year if they have 
earned fewer than 28 semester credits and second (02) year if they have earned 28 
or more semester credits. 

Unclassified Students (UN) are those working for college credit but not 
enrolled in a degree-granting program. Admission as an unclassified student 
requires the recommendation of the dean of the school in which the student 
wishes to enroll. Unclassified students must meet the same entrance require- 
ments as regular degree students and must meet the same academic require- 
ments to continue. If, at a later date, unclassified students wish to change to 
regular degree status, their credits will be evaluated in terms of the require- 
ments of their intended curriculum. 

The Special Student (SP) classification includes Undergraduate Studies and 
Post-Baccalaureate Studies students: 

(1) Undergraduate Studies (UGS) students are United States citizens who 
have not obtained a baccalaureate degree and who take courses but who 
are not currently admitted to a degree program. To be eligible to register as 
a UGS student, a person should either: (a) have acquired a high school 
diploma or a GED certificate; not have been suspended from any college or 
university (including NCSU) within the last three years; and not be a 
degree candidate at NCSU; or (b) be a high school student who has been 
recommended by his/her school and approved by the Undergraduate 
Admissions Office to take lower level courses. Visiting summer sessions 
students and visiting interinstitutional students do not necessarily have to 
meet the above criteria. 

(2) Post-Baccalaureate Studies (PBS) students are United States citizens 
who take courses beyond the baccalaureate degree but who are not cur- 
rently admitted to a degree program. This classification is closed to inter- 
national students with the following exceptions: (a) spouses of regularly 
enrolled NCSU degree students; or (b) students enrolled in special pro- 
grams such as AID. FAO. etc.. who are approved in advance by the Inter- 
national Student Office and the Graduate School. 

52 



All UGS and PBS students must register through the Office of Adult Credit 
Programs & Summer Sessions which is located in the Jane S. McKimmon Center 
for Extension and Continuing Education. Persons found eligible to study as UGS 
or PBS students are not to assume that they have received formal admission to the 
University as either undergraduate or graduate degree candidates. To become a 
degree candidate, formal application must be made through the Undergraduate 
Admissions Office or the Graduate School. 

The maximum course load for all UGS and PBS students is two courses plus 
one physical education course each semester or summer session. They may enroll 
in any course offered by the University, provided they have satisfied any required 
prerequisites and space is available. The academic standards applicable to 
undergraduate degree candidates at the University, including the Suspension 
Policy, apply to UGS and PBS students. 

SEMESTER COURSE LOAD 

For undergraduate degree students the maximum course load is 21 credit 
hours a semester and two courses plus PE in a summer session. To carry more 
than the maximum, students must obtain the approval of their academic adviser 
and of their dean. Undergraduate students who propose to register for 19 or more 
credit hours a semester must obtain approval from their academic adviser. 
Students with a GPA of less than 2.0 are advised to carry no more than 16 credit 
hours a semester. 

For Undergraduate Studies (UGS) and Post-Baccalaureate Studies (PBS) 
students the maximum course load is two courses plus PE in a regular semester 
or summer session. Exceptions must be approved by the Admissions Office for 
UGS students and by the Registrar for PBS students. 

The minimum course load for full-time undergraduate degree students is 12 
credit hours, except in their final semester when a lesser number may be taken if 
that is all the student needs to fulfill the requirements for a degree. In all cases, to 
receive financial aid a student must meet the minimum course load requirements 
of the appropriate funding agency. 

The number of hours for which a student is officially enrolled is that number in 
which the student is enrolled for credit at the end of the second week of classes (i.e., 
the last day to unthdraw or drop a course with a refund). 

GRADING SYSTEM 

(Definition of Letter (xrades and Grade Points)

CR Credit by Examination or Advanced Placement 

IN Incomplete 

LA Temporarily Late 

AU Audit 

NR No Recognition Given for Audit 

W Withdrawal or Late Drop 

Explanation of Letter Grades 

D — Marginal. This grade will be used to recognize that a student's performance 
was marginal but clearly better than that of students who receive an F. 

F— Failing. This grade will be used to indicate that the student has failed the 
course. 

U— Unsatisfactory. This grade is used to indicate that the student is not to 
receive credit for a credit-only or other course for which the passing grade would 
be S (Satisfactory). 

CR — Credit. This grade is used by the registrar to indicate course credit 
received by examination or advanced placement as certified by appropriate 
departments or schools. This grade shall be awarded only when the advanced 
placement testing indicates that the quality of the student's work in the course 
would have been expected to be of C or higher level. 

IN— Incomplete. This is a temporary grade. At the discretion of the instructor, 
students may be given an IN grade for work not completed because of a serious 
interruption in their work not caused by their own negligence. An IN must not be 
used, however, as a substitute for an Fwhen the student 's performance in the course 
is deserving of an F. An IN is only appropriate when the student's record in the 
course is such that the successful completion of particular assignments, projects, or 
tests missed as a result of a documented serious event would enable that student to 
pass the course. Only work missed may be averaged into the grades already 
recorded for that student. 

An IN grade must be made up by the end of the next regular semester (not 
including summer sessions) in which the student is enrolled, provided that this 
period is not longer than twelve months from the end of the semester or summer 
session in which the work was due. In the event that the instructor or department 
offering the course is not able to provide a student with the opportunity to make 
up the incomplete work by the end of the next regular semester in which the 
student is enrolled or within twelve months, whichever is shorter, the instructor 
or department offering the course must notify the student and the Department of 
Registration and Records of the date of the extended deadline for removing the 
IN grade. 

Any IN grade not removed by the end of the next regular semester in which the 
student is enrolled or by the end of twelve months, whichever is shorter, or by the 



54 



extended deadline authorized by the instructor or department offering the 
course and recorded by the Department of Registration and Records will auto- 
matically become a Failing (F) grade and will count as a course attempted. 

Students must not register again for any courses in which they have IN grades; 
such registration does not remove IN grades, and the completion of the course on 
the second occasion will automatically result in an F for the incomplete course. 

LA — Temporarily Late. The LA is an emergency symbol to be used only when 
grades cannot be reported by the teaching department or the professor on time. 
The LA differs from the IN grade in that the student receiving the LA has 
completed the work of the course including the examination. 

AU— Audit. This is used to indicate that a student has successfully audited a 
course by attending class regularly and completing the instructor's require- 
ments. 

NR— No Recognition Given for Audit. This grade is given if the instructor 
concludes that the auditor has gained little from the course due to poor attend- 
ance or failure to fulfill the instructor's requirements. 

W— Withdrawal or Late Drop. The W will be used to indicate on all students' 
academic records all courses for which they have received official approval to 
drop or from which they have received official approval to withdraw after the 
deadlines for dropping 100- through 400-level or 500- and 600-level courses. 

GRADE POINT AVERAGE 

The number of credit hours attempted in a semester or summer session (for 
which grades of A, B, C, D, or F are received) is divided into the total number of 
grade points earned to arrive at the Grade Point Average (GPA). The Grade Point 
Average will be calculated to three decimal points. 

For example, if a student takes 16 credit hours, earning an A in two 3-credit 
courses, a B in one 3-credit course, and a B in one 2-credit course, a C in a 3-credit 
course, and an F in a 2-credit course, the grade point average would be: 

6 (credits of A) x 4 (grade points per credit hour) = 24 

5 (credits of B) x 3 (grade points per credit hour) = 15 

3 (credits of C) x 2 (grade points per credit hour) = 6 

2 (credits of F) x (grade points per credit hour) = 

45 

The total number of grade points earned (45) divided by the number of credit 
hours attempted (16) equals the grade point average, in this case 2.813. 

ACADEMIC HONORS 

High ranking students in their freshman year are eligible for membership in 
Phi Eta Sigma and Alpha Lambda Delta. Both of these national scholastic 
honoraries require a 3.5 semester grade point average or better during the first 
semester or a cumulative average of 3.5 for both semesters during the freshman 

55 



year. Juniors ranking in the top three percentof their class, seniors ranking in the 
top sixth of their class and outstanding graduate students are eligible for election 
to membership in Phi Kappa Phi. a national scholastic honor society. 

Semester Dean's List — A full-time undergraduate student who earns a 
semester average of 3.5 or better on 12 to 14 hours of course work for which grade 
points are earned or a semester average of 3.25 or better on 15 or more hours of 
course work for which grade points are earned shall be placed on the Dean's List 
for that semester. 

Students are not eligible for the Dean's List in any semester in which they 
receive an NC or IN grade. When IN grades are resolved, however, students who 
are otherwise eligible shall be added retroactively to the Dean's List for that 
semester. Dean's List recognition shall be noted on the student's semester grade 
report and permanent academic record. 

Graduation with Honors — Undergraduate degree honor designations are: 
Cum Laude— for GPA 3.25 through 3.499 
Magna Cum Laude— for GPA 3.5 through 3.749 
Summa Cum Laude — for GPA 3.75 and above 

To be eligible for degree honor designations students must have completed at 
least two semesters and at least 30 credit hours at NCSU. 

Valedictorian, Salutatorian, and Highest Ranking Scholar in a College— 

To be eligible for consideration as valedictorian, salutatorian, or highest ranking 
scholar in a college, an undergraduate student must have received at least 100 
academic credits at NCSU (including credit by examination, advanced place- 
ment credit, and S/U courses.) These 100 credits may include no more than 20 
transfer credits through programs officially sponsored by NCSU. Specifically, 
these programs are Cooperating Raleigh Colleges, National Student Exchange, 
International Student Exchange. NCSU sponsored study abroad programs, and 
the affiliated hospital programs in Medical Technology. 

All students whose accumulated grade point averages, based on all courses 
attempted at NCSU, make them eligible for one of these honors shall be so 
recognized. That is, in the case of ties, more than one student will receive the 
honor. However, in the case of ties for valedictorian, no salutatorian will be 
recognized. 

GRADE REPORTS 

At the end of each semester or summer session. Registration and Records issues 
a grade report showing all grades earned during that grading period, as well as 
the record of all previous work taken at this University. 

Address Information — As part of the registration process students will be 
asked to verify and/or complete an address form giving a mailing address to 
which grade reports and other University correspondence will be mailed. Stu- 
dents have the choice of having their grade reports sent either to their parents or 
guardians, or directly to themselves. 



56 



Change of Name or Address — It is the student's responsibility to inform 
Registration and Records of any changes in name or address. Failure to do this 
may prevent prompt delivery of important University correspondence. News 
stories about Dean's List students are sent to North Carolina newspapers based 
on hometown information furnished by Registration and Records. 

ACADEMIC SUSPENSION POLICIES 

A. Suspension Policy for students enrolled prior to 1990 summer sessions. 

All undergraduate students, including Lifelong Education students, who were 
enrolled in NCSUat any time prior to the 1990 summer sessions, will be subject to 
the Suspension Policy set forth beloiv, until the 199Jtfall semester. Beginning with 
the 1994 fall semester, all undergraduate students urill be subject to the Suspension 
Policy stated subsequently under B. 

At the end of any regular semester or summer session a notice of "Academic 
Warning" shall be placed on the grade report of any undergraduate student who 
is not suspended at that time but whose cumulative grade point average for 
courses taken at NCSU is less than 2.0. 

Academic Warning I shall mean that a student's cumulative grade point 
average at NCSU is below the 2.0 minimum required for graduation but greater 
than that which would result in Academic Warning II on the graduated grade 
point average suspension policy. 

Academic Warning II shall mean that a student's cumulative grade point 
average at NCSU is below the minimum required for retention under the next 
step in the graduated grade point average suspension policy. 

Suspension. All undergraduate students in any classification must maintain a 
grade point average which will assure that they are making progress toward the 
2.0 grade point average minimum requirement for graduation. Students will be 
suspended at the end of any regular semester in which they do not meet the 
minimum required cumulative grade point average on all courses taken at 
NCSU according to the following graduated schedule: 

Credit hours attempted at Minimum required cumulative 

NCSU plus credit g-rade point average on all 

hours transferred courses taken at NCSU 

1-27 No requirement 

28 - 59 1.25 

60 - 91 1.55 

92 - 123 1.75 

124 or more 1.95 

Students whose hours attempted at NCSU plus transferred hours total 160 or 
more will not be permitted to register for courses in a subsequent regular 
semester until their academic record has been reviewed by their college dean in 
consultation with their major department or program. Students who in the 
judgment of their college dean are making appropriate progress toward the 
fulfillment of their degree requirements may be authorized to continue for an 
additional semester without conditions or with conditions specified in writing. 



57 



Authorization for these students to continue to register in subsequent semesters 
may be made by the college dean following similar reviews. 

The preceding statements notwithstanding, students shall not be suspended at 
the end of their first regular semester at NCSU. 

Suspended students who are attending a summer session for the purpose of 
improving their academic standing in order to regain eligibility for readmission 
to NCSU will have their suspension continued unless their performance in that 
summer session is sufficient to make them eligible for automatic readmission. A 
student who is not in a suspended status prior to a summer session will not be 
suspended because of performance in that summer session. 

B. Suspension Policy for students enrolled for the first time in the 1990 summer 
sessions or thereafter. Beginning with the 1994 fall semester, this policy will be 
in effect for all students. 

All undergraduate students, including Lifelong Education students, who emboli 
in NCS Ufor the first time in the 1990 summer sessions or thereafter will be subject 
to the Suspension Policy set forth below. Beginning with the 199Jtfall semester, all 
undergraduate students, regardless of when they first enrolled in NCSU, will be 
subject to this policy: 

At the end of any regular semester or summer session a notice of "Academic 
Warning" shall be placed on the grade report of any undergraduate student who 
is not suspended at that time but whose cumulative GPA for courses taken at 
NCSU is less than 2.0. 

Academic Warning I shall mean that a student's cumulative GPA at NCSU is 
less than 2.0 but greater than that which would result in Academic Warning II on 
the graduated retention schedule. Academic Warning I shall be assigned to those 
students who have: 

1-35 credit hours attempted with a cumulative GPA greater than or 

equal to 1.6 but less than 2.0 
36-47 credit hours attempted with a cumulative GPA greater than or 

equal to 1.7 but less than 2.0 
48-59 credit hours attempted with a cumulative GPA greater than or 

equal to 1.8 but less than 2.0 
60-71 credit hours attempted with a cumulative GPA greater than or 

equal to 1.9 but less than 2.0 

Academic Warning II shall mean that a student's cumulative GPA at NCSU 
is below the minimum required for continuation under the next step in the 
graduated retention schedule. It shall be assigned to those students who have: 

1-35 credit hours attempted with a cumulative GPA greater than or 

equal to 1.5 but less than 1.6 
36-47 credit hours attempted with a cumulative GPA greater than or 

equal to 1.6 but less than 1.7 
48-59 credit hours attempted with a cumulative GPA greater than or 

equal to 1.7 but less than 1.8 



58 



60-71 credit hours attempted with a cumulative GPA greater than or 

equal to 1.8 but less than 1.9 
72-83 credit hours attempted with a cumulative GPA greater than or 

equal to 1.9 but less than 2.0 

The minimum eligibility standard for continued enrollment for any under- 
graduate student is defined as maintaining the required grade point average 
(GPA) for the number of credit hours attempted at NCSU plus transferred credit 
hours according to the following retention schedule: 

Minimum cumulative GPA 
Credit hours attempted plus required on all courses 

transferred credit hours taken at NCSU 

1-35 hours 1.5 

36-47 hours 1.6 

48-59 hours 1.7 

60-71 hours 1.8 

72-83 hours 1.9 

more than 83 hours 2.0 

"Probation" will be assigned to those students who fail to achieve the mini- 
mum cumulative GPA required under the retention schedule. Students on proba- 
tion will be allowed to enroll for one additional regular semester for the purpose 
of achieving the minimum cumulative GPA as required under the retention 
schedule. Students on probation are not considered to be in good academic 
standing. 

Probation signifies that serious deficiencies are present in a student's academic 
performance. Students on probation or Academic Warning II will be required to 
have their academic records reviewed by their departmental academic adviser 
and the associate dean in their respective colleges before the end of the second 
week of the probation semester. 

Suspension will be assigned to those students who fail to achieve the minimum 
cumulative GPA required under the retention schedule following a semester on 
probation. 

Suspended students who are attending a summer session for the purpose of 
improving their academic standing in order to regain eligibility for readmission 
to NCSU will have their suspension continued unless their performance in that 
summer session is sufficient to make them eligible for automatic readmission. 

Students will not be suspended at the end of a summer session nor at the end of 
their first regular semester nor until they have attempted 12 or more credit hours 
at NCSU. 

Note: "Credit hours attempted "in this policy means the total credit hours attempted 
at NCSU plus transferred credit hours from other institutions. 

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY 

An official withdrawal means that a student is allowed to drop, without aca- 
demic penalty, all of the courses for which he/she is registered in a given semester 
or summer session. For each semester, the official academic calendar indicates 



59 



the dates for withdrawing with a refund (less a registration fee) and for with- 
drawing without academic penalty. After the refund deadline, prorated refunds 
will only be authorized by the Fee Appeals Committee for medical or unusual 
hardship cases. After the official withdrawal period, withdrawals without aca- 
demic penalty are granted only for unforeseeable, unavoidable, and exceptional 
grounds. 

The student's record will show the date of withdrawal followed by a list of the 
registered courses marked with a "W", but academic grades and quality points 
are not recorded. Undergraduate degree candidates and unclassified students 
initiate the official withdrawal process with the Counseling Center, 2000 Harris 
Hall. Lifelong Education (UGS and PBS) students initiate their withdrawal 
process with the Office of Adult Credit Programs & Summer Sessions, 145 
McKimmon Center. 

Notification of or approval by a degree student's dean may be required for a 
withdrawal within the official period. In cases of withdrawals granted for hard- 
ship reasons, the dean's approval, and in some cases, approval of the advisor 
and/or coordinator-of-advising is required. Cases of withdrawals granted for 
medical or emotional reason must be approved by the Counseling Center after 
evaluation of available documentation or the special situation. 

Parental approval to withdraw may be required for single students who are 
under eighteen. Withdrawal during a semester does not constitute a break in 
residency if the student returns the semester immediately following. In cases 
where a student has obligations to the University for such matters as housing, 
meal plan, and financial aid, the withdrawal will not be processed by Registra- 
tion and Records until the student has officially cleared the obligations. It is 
highly recommended that students considering withdrawal consult their faculty 
advisor or departmental coordinator-of-advising before initiating the with- 
drawal process. 

READMISSION OF FORMER OR SUSPENDED DEGREE STUDENTS 

A Former Degree Student Returning is one who was not in attendance at all 
during the fall or spring semester prior to applying for readmission. All former 
degree students returning, both graduates and undergraduates, must apply for 
readmission to the Department of Registration and Records, NCSU, Box 7313, 
Raleigh, North Carolina 27695-7313. Readmission applications should be sub- 
mitted as soon as possible but no later than 30 days prior to the date of desired 
enrollment. Former students returning should be aware that enrollment restric- 
tions may be imposed at any time which may affect their readmission. A student 
who received a bachelor's degree must (a) apply for admission to the Graduate 
School; or (b) register as a Post-Baccalaureate Studies (PBS) student through the 
Office of Adult Credit Programs & Summer Sessions; or (c) apply for readmis- 
sion as a candidate for a second bachelor's degree or for a professional degree or 
as an undergraduate Unclassified Student. Registration alone is not sufficient to 
enable the student to be readmitted. 



60 



Readmission of Former Degree Students 

Students who were eligible to continue at NCSU at the time of their leaving are 
eligible to be readmitted to their former program provided they have a grade 
point average of 2.0 on all courses taken at NCSU and provided there is space 
available. 

Students who were eligible to continue at NCSU at the time of their leaving and 
who have a grade point average of less than 2.0 on all courses taken at NCSU may 
be determined to be eligible for readmission through one of the following 
procedures: 

a. Students whose grade point average on all courses taken at NCSU is less 
than 2.0 but greater than that required for continuation under the next step 
in the graduated suspension policy are on Academic Warning I. Application 
for readmission from former students who are or would be on Academic 
Warning I will be reviewed. 

b. Students whose grade point average on all courses taken at NCSU is less 
than that required for continuation under the next step in the graduated 
suspension policy but who are not suspended are on Academic Warning II. 
Applications for readmission from former students who are or would be on 
Academic Warning II will be reviewed. 

c. Former students whose grade point average on all courses taken at NCSU is 
such that they were or would have been suspended will have their applica- 
tions for readmission reviewed by the University Admissions Committee. If 
readmitted, their academic status will be Academic Warning II. 

Former students whose hours attempted at NCSU plus transferred hours total 
160 or more will have their application for readmission reviewed in consultation 
with the student's dean. If readmitted, they will be notified of any applicable 
conditions with regard to their making appropriate progress toward fulfillment 
of degree requirements. 

Readmission of Suspended Students 

a. Automatic Readmission. Students who are academically suspended may do 
one or both of the following: (1) attend any number of summer sessions at 
NCSU; (2) enroll in NCSU courses through Independent Studies (formerly 
called correspondence courses); (3) enroll in NCSU Courses via Cable or 
Courses via Videocassette. 

Note: Courses taken at an institution other than NCSU or offered by some 
other institution through Independent Studies do not affect a student's suspen- 
sion status at NCSU. 

When by one or more of these methods a suspended student has improved 
his or her academic standing to the extent that the student is no longer 
academically suspended, that student becomes automatically eligible for 
readmission to a regular semester and no letter of appeal to the University 
Admissions Committee by the student is necessary. 



61 



b. Appeal to the University Admissions Committee. A student who is academi- 
cally suspended, who is ineligible for automatic readmission as described 
above, and who feels that extenuating- circumstances contributed to that 
suspension, may appeal to the University Admissions Committee for read- 
mission to a regular semester. A letter must be written to the Committee 
stating: 

1. the reasons for former academic difficulty with an explanation of ex- 
tenuating circumstances; 

2. why the student believes he or she can now successfully meet all degree 
requirements within a reasonable length of time; 

3. the summer sessions. Independent Studies, or NCSU off-campus courses 
that have been completed; and 

4. the address and telephone number to be used for notification of the 
Admissions Committee's decision. 

Note: The Admissions Committee will not act on the appeal of any student 
currently enrolled in any summer session, Independent Studies, or off- 
campus course. Suspended students whose hours attempted at NCSU plu^ 
transferred hours are equal to or greater than 160 must be recommended by 
their deans for continuation or rea dm ission before the A dm issions Committee 
mill review an appeal. 

The letter should be mailed to: Department of Registration and Records. 
Attention: Admissions Committee. North Carolina State University. Box 
7313. Raleigh. North Carolina 27695-7313. The letter must reach the 
Department of Registration and Records by the following deadlines: 

1. no later than two weeks before the first day of classes for the fall semester 
for students who did not attend summer school or who attended first 
summer session only; 

2. no later than one week before the first day of classes for the fall semester 
for students who attended second summer session; and 

3. no later than one week before the first day of classes for the spring 
semester. 

Note: The Admissions Committee meets prior to the first day of classes. All 
material must be received in accordance with the above dates. 

c. Appeal to the University Admissions Committee by Students Who Have Not 
Been Enrolled at NCSU for Three or More Years (Contractual Readmission) 

After not being enrolled at NCSU (excluding summer sessions. Inde- 
pendent Studies, and NCSU off-campus courses) for a continuous three-year 
period or longer, a student whose former academic record at NCSU was 
such that he or she was suspended or would have been suspended or placed 
on Academic Warning II under current policies may petition the University 
Admissions Committee for contractual readmission. 

The Committee will decide each case on its individual merits with special 
regard to the student's written appeal, the productive use of the three or 
more intervening years, evidence of motivation and achievement based on 
aj^y academic work done during those three or more years, and a supporting 
letter from the department offering the curriculum into which the student 
requests admission. This letter must contain a proposed plan of study agreed 



62 



to and signed by the student, the department head, and the dean. If the 
curriculum into which the student requests admission is different from that 
in which the student was last enrolled, the petition to the Admissions Com- 
mittee must also be accompanied by a Curriculum Change Form approved 
by the accepting dean. 

If a contractual readmission is approved, the following conditions will 
apply: 

1. The student's entire academic record at NCSU will be recorded on any 
subsequent transcript, including a GPA on all work attempted at NCSU; 

2. For courses attempted prior to readmission, only work of "C" or better 
will count toward fulfilling graduation requirements, providing that 
such courses meet current curriculum requirements; 

3. For purposes of suspension and graduation, a second GPA will be calcu- 
lated based only on courses that are attempted after readmission. Total 
hours for graduation and suspension will be based on all work at NCSU 
after readmission plus former work of C or better that is acceptable to the 
department plus hours transferred from other institutions; 

4. The student must maintain an overall GPA of 2.0 or better on all courses 
attempted after readmission; 

5. Students who fail to achieve an overall GPA of 2.0 required in #4 above 
will lose their contractual readmission status. Their status for subse- 
quent work as a degree student at NCSU shall be determined on the basis 
of total hours attempted at NCSU plus transferred hours, and their GPA 
calculated using all courses attempted at NCSU; and 

6. A student may be readmitted under this option only once. 

Intra-Campus Transfers (curriculum change) 

A former student returning who desires a change of curriculum must have his 
or her records transferred to the new college and submit a properly validated 
Curriculum Change Form to the Department of Registration and Records. 1000 
Harris Hall, before readmission can be processed. 

TRANSFER CREDIT 

Transcripts of college course credit for new transfer students and for NCSU 
students who have taken course work at another institution are evaluated by the 
dean of the appropriate school to determine how the work applies toward fulfill- 
ing the graduation requirements of each student's intended curriculum. 

Students admitted to an NCSU undergraduate degree program who wish to 
take courses at another institution must obtain prior endorsement from their 
academic department and prior written approval from their school dean in order 
to insure that the transfer credits will apply toward fulfilling specific graduation 
requirements. 

Transfer credit is not recorded on former students' permanent records until 
after they have been readmitted and have reenrolled.

REPEATING COURSES 

Students who repeat a course, regardless of the grade previously made, will 
have both grades counted in their cumulative Grade Point Average, except as 
indicated below. Undergraduate students may be allowed as many semester 
hours as are appropriate in the departmental curriculum for courses that: ( 1 ) are 
titled seminar, special problems, special topics, independent studies, or research 
(usually numbered 490-499 or 590-599); and (2) cover topics different from those 
studied when the courses were previously taken. Unless a course satisfies one or 
the other of the above conditions, the semester hours will be counted only once 
toward the number of hours required for graduation even though students repeat 
and pass the course both times. 

The adviser's approval is required for students to repeat any course previously 
passed with a C: no approval can be given for a grade of A or B. Nor will it be 
given when: (1) students wish to repeat a lower division course that they have 
passed with a grade of C or better after having successfully completed an 
advanced course covering the same material; (2) students wish to repeat a lower 
level course that they have passed with a C or better which is a prerequisite for an 
advanced course that they had already successfully completed; (3) students wish 
to take an introductory course after they have successfully completed an 
advanced course dealing with similar material; or (4) students wish to repeat a 
course in which they have an outstanding grade of IN. 

Students must not register again for any courses in which they have IN grades. 
Such registration does not remove IN grades, and the completion of the course on 
the second occasion will automatically result in an F for the incomplete course. 

For information, contact the Department of Registration and Records, 1000 
Harris, (919) 515-2572. 

REPEATING COURSES WITHOUT PENALTY 

A student is eligible to repeat without penalty a maximum of three courses (but 
not more than 12 credit hours) at the 100- and/or 200-level provided all of the 
following criteria have been satisfied: (1) each course to be repeated was com- 
pleted for the first time in the 1984 fall semester or during any regular semester 
or summer session thereafter at NCSU; (2) the student received a grade of D or 
NC/F on each course to be repeated: (3) a student may not repeat without penalty 
a lower division course after having successfully completed an advanced course 
dealing with the same subject matter: (4) The student can receive the benefits of 
this policy only once for each course repeated; and (5) the repeat without penalty 
policy will not change the student's recorded grade point average for the semes- 
ter in which the course was originally taken, however, it does affect the student's 
cumulative grade point average. Repeating a course does not retroactively change 
the probationary status. 

To repeat a course without penalty under this policy means that an eligible 
student who completes for the second time a 100- or 200-level NCSU course may 
have the grade points and the credit hours attempted and earned on the first 
completion of the course removed from the calculation of his or her cumulative 
GP A and from the calculation of the total hours attempted under the provisions of 



64 



the suspension policy. This policy applies only to courses graded A, B, C, D, or 
NC/F on both the first and second completions. 

Note: A student's grade point average that is modified as a result of a course 
repeat without penalty option may not be the grade point average recognized by 
other institutions. Students who intend to apply for admission to another institu- 
tion for graduate, professional, or continuing undergraduate studies are encour- 
aged to inquire about each institution's method for calculating a prospective stu- 
dent's grade point average. 

For additional information, contact the Department of Registration and 
Records, 1000 Harris Hall, (919) 515-2572. 

CREDIT BY EXAMINATION 

Undergraduate students currently registered at NCSU (degree, unclassified, 
or lifelong education) may request an examination for course credit in a course 
whether enrolled in that course or not, under the conditions described below. 
Students must initiate a request with their adviser (except when a teaching 
department awards credit based upon group testing for placement purposes). 
Should the adviser approve, the student must arrange for the examination with 
the department offering the course. The department may administer the exami- 
nation in any manner pertinent to the materials of the course. Departments are 
encouraged to offer credit by examination in all courses but have the prerogative 
of excluding certain courses which are demonstrably unsuited for credit by 
examination. 

The academic standards for credit by examination will be commensurate with 
the academic standards for the course. If a student's performance on the exami- 
nation is judged to be of C or higher quality, the department will notify the 
Department of Registration and Records on a Grade Change Report that the 
student has received Credit by Examination for the course. The Department of 
Registration and Records will enter the appropriate number of credit hours on 
the student's permanent academic record. Credits earned through Credit by 
Examination are not used in the computation of a student's grade point average. 

The Department of Registration and Records will post course credit by exami- 
nation to a student's permanent academic record only if that student is currently 
registered at NCSU. However, if the course credit by examination would enable 
a student to complete the requirements for a degree, that student would not have 
to be registered in order to receive the credit. 

If a student fails to achieve C or higher quality work on an attempted credit by 
examination, no action is required other than the department's notifying the 
student. However, that student is not eligible for another such examination in the 
same course. 

Once a student has failed a course or has completed for credit or audit more 
than fifty percent of a course, the student may not attempt credit by examination 
for that course. Under unusual circumstances, exceptions may be made upon the 
written recommendation of the student's adviser and the approval of the depart- 
ment offering the course. A student who receives credit by examination in a 
course in which that student is currently enrolled must officially drop that course 
no later than mid-semester. 

65 



CREDIT BY EXAMINATION THROUGH INDEPENDENT STUDIES 

Persons who are not currently enrolled on campus and who have gained 
through study or experience, knowledge of the content of undergraduate credit 
courses offered through Independent Studies may (with the approval of the 
Independent Studies staff and the academic department offering a course) 
receive credit for that course by special examination. Students may request 
approval to attempt credit by examination by completing and submitting a form 
available from Independent Studies. The University of North Carolina, Box 
1020. The Friday Center. Chapel Hill. North Carolina 27599-1020. (919) 
962-1107. 

Currently enrolled students are not eligible for credit by examination through 
Independent Studies. These students should go directly to the appropriate aca- 
demic department to request credit by examination under the regular pro- 
cedures in effect on campus. 

CREDIT-ONLY OPTION FOR FREE ELECTIVE COURSES 

Each undergraduate student has the option to count toward graduation 
requirements a maximum of 12 semester hours in the category of credit-only 
courses (exclusive of courses authorized to be graded on Satisfactory-Unsatis- 
factory basis). The student may select as credit-only any course offered by the 
University except those in Military Science and Aerospace Studies. Selected 
course must be included under the free elective category of the specified curricu- 
lum in which the student is enrolled. The student will be responsible for attend- 
ance, assignments, and examinations. 

The student's performance in a credit-only course will be reported as S (satis- 
factory grade for credit-only course and given when course work is equivalent to 
C or better) or U (no-credit grade for credit-only course). The grade for a credit- 
only course will have no effect on the student's Grade Point Average. The course 
and its grade will be counted in the cumulative hours attempted. Credit-only 
courses do not count in the calculation of eligibility for the Semester Dean's List, 
which requires either twelve hours or fifteen hours of course work for which grade 
points are earned. 

Lifelong Education students may take on a credit-only basis any course for 
which they satisfy prerequisites. 

AUDITS (UNDERGRADUATE) 

Students wishing to audit a course before or after taking it for credit must have 
the approval of their adviser and of the department offering the course. Auditors 
are expected to attend class regularly. The degree to which an auditor must 
participate in class beyond regular attendance is optional with the instructor; 
any such requirements should be clearly explained in writing to the auditor at 
the beginning of the semester. Should the instructor conclude that poor attend- 
ance has resulted in an auditor's gaining little from the course, the instructor 
should mark NR (no recognition given for an audit) on the final grade report. 
Students who have taken a course for audit may, with their adviser's approval 
enroll in the course for credit during a subsequent semester or summer session. 

66 



For tuition cost purposes, audits are treated as full credit value. For all other 
purposes, hours of audit do not count in calculating undergraduate course loads. 
Note: Veteran's benefits are governed by Veterans Administration regulation 
concerning audits. Public Law 94-502 (G.l. Bill) and Public Law 6k (sons and 
daughters of deceased or disabled veterans) consider only courses being taken for 
credit when determining a student's load for benefit purposes. For information, 
contact the Veterans Affairs Office, 1000 Harris Hall, (919) 515-30A8. 

INTRA-CAMPUS TRANSFERS 

Undergraduate students wishing to change from one curriculum to another 
must report to the dean's office of the college offering the curriculum in which 
entrance is desired and request acceptance into the new college or curriculum. 

A student who has attempted fewer than twelve credit hours at NCSU may 
transfer to another curriculum provided that student meets the admission 
requirements of the intended new curriculum. A student who has attempted tivelve 
or more credit hours at NCSU may transfer to another curriculum provided that 
student is eligible to do so under the intra-campus transfer policy which pertains to 
the intended curriculum. 

If acceptance is approved, a Curriculum Change Form will be issued, bearing 
the signature of the accepting dean. If the former curriculum was in a different 
college, the Curriculum Change Form should be submitted for the signature of 
the releasing dean with the request that all records be transferred to the new 
college and department. From the standpoint of advising, registration, and 
adding and dropping courses, the student is considered to be in the new curricu- 
lum as soon as the Curriculum Change Form is completed and filed with the 
Department of Registration and Records and the records of the student have been 
transferred to the new department. 

Code of Student Conduct 

All students who enroll at NCSU are required to adhere to the Code of Student 
Conduct. This code . . . "sets out the kind of behavior that disrupts and inhibits the 
normal functioning of the University, and what action it will take to protect the 
community from such disruption." Academic and Non-Academic Misconduct, 
both on and off campus are addressed in the Code. Students charged and found 
guilty of violating the Code of Student Conduct will receive sanctions that may 
range from an oral reprimand to expulsion from the University.

locations to serve students, faculty, and staff. Awarded the Ivy Award by Restau- 
rant & Institutions magazine in 1988, University Dining is recognized nationally 
for exciting and innovative concepts in campus dining. 

The Fountain Dining Hall, located on West Campus serves as the main hub for 
the meal-plan program. The Dining Hall offers its patrons an all-you-can-eat

structured element of the program is a set number of meals served in an all-you- 
can-eat fashion in the main Dining Hall. The flexible element is a Cash-Points 
system. Part of the meal plan purchase price is directly converted to a non- 
refundable Cash-Points account that can be used only at University Dining 
locations on campus. Cash-Points are a dollar-for-dollar equivalence built into 
each meal plan to allow students the flexibility of eating meals away from the 

68 



Dining Hall. The meal program is designed to allow students to chose the number 
of structured meals and the amount of flexible Cash-Points. 

University Dining takes pride in offering quality food and services designed 
specifically to meet the wants and needs of students. These seven meal plans 
provide students with varied menu choices and the utmost in convenience. For

houses two galleries and is a public access space designed to exhibit and preserve 
objects of the University's permanent collection as well as special exhibits loaned 
to the University. Exhibits throughout the year are free and open to the public. 

LEADERSHIP TRAINING 

The Student Leadership Center, sponsored by the University Student Cen- 
ter, offers a variety of programs such as the Leadership Development Series and 
the Role Model Leader's Forum that are designed to give all NCSU students the 
opportunity to explore the nature of leadership and to develop their leadership 
potential and skills in living. The Leadership Development Series consists of 
approximately 50 non-credit three-hour modules that focus on different aspects 
of leadership. These modules are normally offered on Monday and Tuesday 
evenings and at least once each semester. Further information may be obtained 
from 3111 University Student Center, (919) 515-2452. 

A Leader's Reaction Course is maintained and operated by the Military 
Science Department. This course is designed to provide practical experience in 
problem-solving, decision-making, and directing the activities of small groups. 
The course is available to all student organizations and activities officially recog- 
nized by the University. Its use must be coordinated through the Professor of 
Military Science. 

The Pershing Rifles is a student organization open to all students at NCSU. 
Members of the Pershing Rifles participate in drill and ceremony activities to 
include the colorguard at home football and basketball games. Additionally, they 
participate in parades in the local area and regional drill meets. The Pershing 
Rifles is sponsored by the Army ROTC, though participants are not required to 
be enrolled in the ROTC program. 

The Ranger Challenge Team is a cadet organization open to members of the 
Wolfpack Battalion. Members of the Ranger Challenge Team participate in 
many physically and mentally demanding activities throughout the school year, 
including tactical exercises, rope bridging, road marching, land navigation, 
helicopter flights, and competitions. The Ranger Challenge Team is sponsored by 
Army ROTC. 

INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 

The Department of Athletics conducts the University's intercollegiate athlet- 
ics program involving 11 varsity sports for men, nine for women, and one co-ed. 

The athletics program is administered by the Athletics Director with the 
Athletics Council, made up of 1 1 faculty, three alumni, two members of student 
government, two student athletes, and one coach, serving in an advisory capacity 
to the Athletics Director and Chancellor. The program is self-supporting and is 
operated through gate receipts, radio and television revenues, and student fees. 
Funds for athletics grants-in-aid are provided through the North Carolina State 
Student Aid Association (Wolfpack Club). Grants-in-aid are based upon the 
recommendation of the coach of each sport, approved by the Athletics Director, 
and awarded by the University's Financial Aid Office.

COLLEGES, DEPARTMENTS, 
AND PROGRAMS OF STUDY 

Undergraduate programs of study are offered by the College of Agriculture 
and Life Sciences, the School of Design, the College of Education and Psychology, 
the College of Engineering, the College of Forest Resources, the College of 
Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Management, the College of 
Physical and Mathematical Sciences, and the College of Textiles. 

GENERAL EDUCATION DISTRIBUTION 
REQUIREMENTS 

A university education should prepare students for a full life in their profes- 
sions and occupations by means of curricula that provide both practical founda- 
tions for future careers and such intangibles as intellectual flexibility, broad 
knowledge, and a basic comprehension of human achievements. To accomplish 
these ends, all baccalaureate programs at NCSU include the following general 
education requirements: 
English Composition— Satisfactory completion of ENG 111 and ENG 112. 
Mathematics— Six credit hours of mathematics and/or work in the closely 
related fields of statistics, computer science, and logic. At least one of these 
courses must be a course in mathematics. 

Humanities and Social Sciences— Eighteen credit hours not including ENG 
111 and ENG 112. Within the minimum of eighteen credit hours, at least six 
credit hours must be in the humanities and at least six credit hours must be in 
the social sciences. A list of courses appropriate for use as humanities courses 
and a list of courses appropriate for use as social science courses are issued 
periodically by the Provost's Office. Courses not on the list may not be used to 
fulfill humanities or social science requirements in any curriculum. Colleges 
and departments may specify groups of courses or specific individual courses 
from the list to be used by their students in fulfilling the humanities and social 
science requirements in their curricula. 

Natural Sciences- Eight credit hours, including at least one basic course 
from the biological, earth, or physical sciences. 

Free Electives— All curricula must include at least nine credit hours of free 
electives. No other limitations should be imposed upon the student's choice of 
these electives, provided the student has satisfied the prerequisites and pro- 
vided that no elected course should cover material that is considered remedial, 
that covers material at an elementary level after the student has taken com- 
parable material at an advanced level, or that covers material substantially 
presented in a course previously taken. Students are encouraged to use their 
free electives to explore fields of study different from those required in their 
curriculum. Free electives may be taken on a credit-only basis up to a maxi- 
mum of 12 credit hours. Types of courses that are frequently selected as free 
electives include environmental awareness courses, fine arts, introductions to a 



78 



discipline or technology designed for non-majors, additional humanities and 
social sciences, and courses that are part of a minor, a second major, or a dual 
degree. Any elective in a curriculum is interpreted as a free elective unless 
qualifications are specifically listed. 

Physical Education— Four credit hours of physical education (PE 100 and 
three credit hours of activity courses). Required physical education courses 
may be taken on a credit-only basis. Students with appropriate skills, expe- 
rience, and knowledge may satisfy three of the four required physical educa- 
tion credits (PE 100 not included) through credit by examination. All students 
who do not pass the survival swimming test taken during PE 100 will be 
expected to take PE 112 (Beginning Swimming) unless exempted. 
The full requirements for completion of each undergraduate program of study 
at NCSU reflect the general education distribution requirements described 
above, additional college requirements, and departmental requirements particu- 
lar to a given major or degree program. Throughout this section the degree 
requirements are frequently shown as particular courses or categories of courses. 
The course prefix abbreviations (e.g., ANS, CSC. HI. and PSY) provide a key 
for locating the basic information for individual courses in the "Course Descrip- 
tions" section of this catalog. 

FUTURE GENERAL EDUCATION 
DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS 

The Council on Undergraduate Education has recommended and the Univer- 
sity Academic Policy Council has approved a major revision in NCSU's general 
education requirements for all baccalaureate degrees. These new requirements 
are intended to be incorporated into each undergraduate curriculum for new 
freshman and transfer students entering in the summer and fall of 1994. 

The revised general education requirements are designed to achieve the follow- 
ing goals: 

(1) help students to use the arts of communication as powerful modes of learn- 
ing, as ways of understanding the thought and conventions of the disci- 
plines and professions, and as ways of participating effectively in those 
disciplines and professions as well as in social and civic life. 

(2) introduce students to the principles and methods of the natural and 
mathematical sciences, 

(3) introduce students to a broad range of ideas, modes of inquiry, and pivotal 
works in the humanities and social sciences, 

(4) help students to develop an appreciation of diverse cultures and traditions 
throughout the world, and 

(5) help students to understand the interactive nature of science, technology, 
and society as well as the dilemmas posed by such interactions. 



79 



MATHEMATICAL AND NATURAL SCIENCES 
Mathematical Sciences— Rationale 

The study of mathematical sciences will enable the student to: 

(1) understand rudimentary mathematics so as to function intelligently in our 
technological society, 

(2) appreciate mathematics as a human endeavor and as a deductive 
discipline, 

(3) develop problem-solving skills applicable to a variety of decision-making 
situations, and 

(4) become a more critical consumer of quantitative information. 

Natural Sciences— Rationale 

Development and application of new technologies at an increasing rate, which 
frequently have an impact on seemingly unrelated areas, require scientifically 
literate citizens capable of understanding the issues, contributing to both the 
debate and, ultimately, to the choice between alternative actions. The natural 
sciences component of general education should strive to develop an adequate 
level of scientific literacy in all students to provide them with the skills to be 
participatory citizens in an increasingly technological society. 

Education in the natural sciences will enable the student to: 

(1) develop knowledge of the major concepts, principles, laws, theories, and 
responsible applications of science, 

(2) understand the methods and processes of science in solving problems and 
making decisions, 

(3) understand the interactions of science, technology and society, and 

(4) cultivate interests that will lead to a richer and more satisfying life through 
a continuing awareness of scientific developments. 

Minimum requirements for all curricula (20 hours) 

A total of six courses (20 hours) in the mathematical and natural sciences. 

(1) Two courses (6 hours) selected from mathematics, statistics, and logic; one 
must be a mathematics course. 

(2) Three courses ( 1 1 hours) from the natural sciences; two from different basic 
sciences (biology, chemistry, earth sciences and physics); two of the three 
courses must have a laboratory. 

(3) The sixth course (3 hours) selected from any of the mathematical science; 
natural science; or science, technology and society courses. 

WRITING AND SPEAKING 

Rationale 

Writing and speaking are powerful ways of understanding ourselves and the 
world we live in. It is through writing and speaking that the various disciplines 
and professions define the knowledge and methodologies that characterize them. 
Because these communication arts are central to learning and to engaging in the 
productive life of a community, students must: 



80 



(1) learn to use writing and speaking as ways of generating, critiquing, and 
refining ideas, both their own and those of others; 

(2) understand and use the conventions and standards governing written and 
spoken discourse across academic disciplines; 

(3) develop the critical reading, writing, and speaking abilities necessary for 
participating effectively in a discipline; and 

(4) develop a repertoire of strategies for addressing the concerns of audiences 
in the many contexts of contemporary life - academic, professional, and 
civic. 

Minimum requirement for all curricula (9 hours) 

(1) Two semesters of composition and rhetoric during the freshman year. 

(2) One semester from any of the following: 

(a) advanced writing, 

(b) speech, or 

(c) foreign language (FL_201 or higher in the student's first foreign lan- 
guage or any FL_ course in a second language). 

Meeting these goals requires students to engage in writing and speaking across 
the curriculum. To this end, communications requirements should be integral to 
all courses used by students to fulfill the humanities and social sciences 
requirements. 

Further, in order that skills develop broadly and consistently along with the 
individual's increasing knowledge of subject matter, all upper-division courses 
offered in the University should incorporate a significant communications 
requirement, and at least one major written paper should be required in every 
curriculum in both the junior and senior years. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE 

Rationale 

In a sense, languages are keys to the world. The continuous expansion of 
international relations makes the knowledge of foreign languages increasingly 
significant. In learning a foreign language and studying its literature and cul- 
tures, students acquire a body of knowledge about how humans think, view the 
world, express themselves, and communicate with one another. 

Language learning also expands one's ability to create and discover new mean- 
ing in one's own language and culture. Knowledge of the linguistic structures of a 
second language helps students to understand their own language better. Like- 
wise, an awareness of contrasting cultural concepts sensitizes students to the 
differences between their own culture and others. Such an awareness has become 
increasingly important as the communities of the world have become more 
interconnected and interdependent. The needs of our global society require that 
more citizens have access to other languages and cultures in order to cooperate in 
the process of improving the quality of human life. 

Minimum requirements for all curricula (0 hours) 

(1) Two years of high school foreign language be required as a prerequisite for 
admission to the University. 

81 



(2) Foreign language proficiency at the FL_ 102 level be required for 
graduation. 

HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES 

Rationale 

The subject of the humanities and social sciences is the human condition in its 
many manifestations. Studying these disciplines enables us to understand what 
is common to humanity as a whole and to appreciate differences among groups 
and individuals. Our capacity to function in society and to contribute meaning- 
fully to it is enhanced by the awareness of human values and choices, and by the 
understanding of human processes, that an education in the humanities and 
social sciences develops. Such an education also empowers people to have well- 
considered moral convictions, intellectual preferences, and tastes; to make their 
own and others' lives more fully human by drawing on a wide range of cultural 
resources; and to participate in public life as informed and responsible citizens. 

The goal of education in the humanities and social sciences is to give the 
students adequate understanding of: 

(1) the cultural and linguistic traditions of their own and other societies, 

(2) the present as a product of historical processes, 

(3) the application of theoretical and quantitative models to the study of human 
behavior, both individual and collective, 

(4) ethical choices and the issues of human values they entail, and how to make 
those choices with intellectual rigor and clarity, 

(5) the aesthetic, personal, and cultural significance of works of art, 

(6) various disciplines as modes of inquiry with distinctive purposes and intel- 
lectual processes, and 

(7) their majors in a broader context that incorporates social, historical, ethical 
and aesthetic perspectives, 

and the ability to: 

(1) distinguish degrees of plausibility and verification, by critically examining 
both evidence and logic, 

(2) read analytically (i.e, to reconstruct arguments and consider implications) 
and interpretatively (i.e, to grasp meaning by being sensitive to the ways in 
which meaning is generated), as well as to acquire information, and 

(3) recognize patterns within and between content areas. 

Minimum requirements for all curricula (21 hours) 

The general education requirements in the Humanities and Social Sciences 
consist of 2 1 hours designed to expose students to content areas that demonstrate 
the relevant modes of inquiry: 

(1) Two courses or the equivalent in the study of history and/or literature (6 

hours). 

The study of history provides an understanding of continuities and changes 

in human thought and behavior and of the ongoing process in which indi- 
viduals shape and are shaped by their societies and their governments. 



82 



Studying history also provides training in the analysis of process and the 
evaluation of a wide variety of evidence. 

The study of literature introduces students to the many ways of deriving 
meaning from the human condition and to the many forms in which 
meaning is expressed. Studying literature also develops students' capacity 
for critical analysis and personal expression, their aesthetic sensitivity, and 
their reading and writing skills. 

(2) One course or the equivalent in the study of philosophy, religion, or the 
visual and performing arts (3 hours). 

In the study of philosophy, students are exposed to the rigorous procedures 
of philosophical thought, to ethical issues, and to the insights of ethical 
reasoning. In the study of religions, they are introduced to beliefs of their 
own and other cultures, and they learn how various religions have resolved 
ethical issues and have addressed the human condition. The visual and 
performing arts develop students' aesthetic sensitivities, critical judgment, 
and personal creativity. They also provide students with an understanding 
of the cultural and historical dimensions of artistic expression. 

(3) Two courses or the equivalent from different content areas, in the study of 
psychology, economics, politics and government, sociology, anthropology 
and cultural geography. (6 hours). 

The study of these subjects enables students to understand individual and 
collective human behavior by exploring meaning within a variety of social, 
cultural and political contexts; by analyzing the structures within which 
human goals are established and human choices are made; and by applying 
theoretical and quantitative models to specific cases. 

(4) Two additional courses selected within Humanities and Social Sciences (6 
hours). 

These hours could be used to pursue specific interests, to provide additional 
breadth or develop depth by taking courses focused on a common theme. 

(5) Among the courses selected to fulfill the Humanities and Social Sciences 
requirement at least one must focus on a non-English speaking culture. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION 

Rationale 

Essential to a university student's development are attitudes and skills for 
healthy life-styles. In addition to maintaining fitness, participation in team and 
individual physical activity significantly reduces major health risks. 

Goals for students in physical education include: 

(1) learning the fundamentals of cardiovascular and strength development 
and applying this knowledge in the initiation and/or continuation of per- 
sonal fitness programs, 

(2) acquiring the basic skills of several lifetime sports or activities and enhanc- 
ing their proficiencies in these skills so that they will continue to participate 
throughout life, 

(3) gaining a working knowledge of the rules, strategies, and safety aspects of 
several sports or activities, 

(4) reducing stress from the academic rigors of their other courses, and 

83 



(5) improving their general physical, social, and mental well-being while 
learning, participating, and having fun. 

Minimum requirements for all curricula (2 hours) 

Two credit hours, four semesters in physical education. 

(1) This requirement includes PE 100. 

(2) All courses will be available on an S/U basis. 

SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIETY 

Rationale 

North Carolina State University, as a land grant university, has a mission that 
stresses the application of science and technology or the betterment of human- 
kind. It is essential, therefore, that students be exposed to the vital interactions 
among science, technology, society and the quality of life. 

Goals for students completing the Science, Technology and Society require- 
ment include: 

(1) developing an understanding of the influence of science and technology on 
civilizations. 

(2) developing the ability to respond critically to technological issues in civic 
affairs, and 

(3) understanding the interactions among science, technology and values. 

Minimum requirement for all curricula (3 hours) 

Courses which satisfy this requirement can be oriented toward science and 
technology or toward the humanities and social sciences. This course can also 
partially satisfy either the humanities and social sciences requirement or the 
mathematical and natural sciences requirement but not both. Students with 
majors in science and technology should study this topic from a humanities and 
social sciences perspective and those students in the humanities and social scien- 
ces should select courses oriented toward science and technology. This require- 
ment can be satisfied by an interdisciplinary course designed to cover both 
perspectives. 

COMMUNICATION AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY 
Computer Literacy— Rationale 

Today's graduate must have a knowledge of information technology and com- 
puter applications. Every student needs a basic understanding of information 
processing. It is not necessary that every student be a programmer. 

Students should develop and demonstrate proficiency in the use of computers, 
learning to use applications such as word processing, spreadsheets, database 
management programs, electronic mail, and packages and applications specific 
to their field of study. 



84 



Minimum requirement for all curricula (0 hours) 

The following may be used to fulfill computer technology instruction: 

(1) instruction and assignments required within courses, and/or 

(2) required use of a computer to complete assignments. 

Library/Information Literacy — Rationale 

The demands of an increasingly technological and information-dependent 
society require that students have a basic understanding of how information is 
identified and defined by experts, structured, physically organized, and 
accessed. 

Proficiency is best gained by requiring the use of information resources to 
complete an assignment or to create a bibliography from which a paper or 
speech is developed. Information retrieval instruction beyond that provided in 
freshman English could be connected with writing and speaking requirements 
and/or it could be taught by requiring assignments involving substantial use of 
library resources. Academic units are encouraged to work closely with library 
staff for the development and delivery of instruction and experience in informa- 
tion retrieval techniques. 

Minimum requirement for all curricula (0 hours) 

The following may be used to fulfill information retrieval instruction: 

(1) use of one or more class periods to teach the structure of information, and to 
provide experience using major information resources, 

(2) use of self-paced printed instructional materials, 

(3) use of computer-based instructional materials, 

(4) development of an information-based assignment requiring use of library 
resources, and/or 

(5) other methods as appropriate for the discipline. 

FREE ELECTIVES 

All schools and colleges are encouraged to include free electives in their curric- 
ula to satisfy their educational objectives. Moreover, students who would like to 
take courses beyond those required for their degree are encouraged to do so. 

TOTAL HOURS 

Minimum credit hours required in an baccalaureate curriculum that has not 
been designated a five-year program range from 120 to 128. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

Students are eligible for graduation when they have completed satisfactorily 
all the academic requirements of their degree program as specified by their 
major department, their college, and the University. 

NCSU requires that, in addition to other University, college, and departmental 
requirements, all students must have a grade point average of at least 2.0, based 



85 



on all courses attempted at NCSU, in order to be eligible to receive a baccalau- 
reate degree. 

Minimum Hours Required for Graduation— These are shown for each cur- 
riculum and range from 120 to 141. Curricula in the high range normally are 
those involving a required summer camp or field experience. Students may take 
more hours than the required minimum. 

Len^h of Time to Graduation— The normal and expected length of time to 
graduation is four years (eight semesters) which requires a student to complete 
an average of slightly more than 16 credit hours each semester (for most curric- 
ula) or to attend one or more summer sessions. 

In order to make continuous progress toward graduation, students are encour- 
aged to take full advantage of the University's advising and support services. 
Effective career decision-making and early, deliberate, long-range semester-by- 
semester planning of courses and careful selection of extra-curricular commit- 
ments can provide direction and motivation necessary for effective use of time to 
graduation. Additional factors that may assure a student's continuous progress 
toward graduation include (1) good academic performance in freshman and 
basic prerequisite courses, (2) advanced placement credit for introductory 
courses, and (3) enrollment in summer sessions. 

Students are discouraged from taking unrealistic course loads as a means to 
accelerate their progress toward graduation as this may result in poor academic 
performance. 

Students may take more than eight semesters to complete an undergraduate 
program at NCSU. In some cases this is the result of effective decision-making on 
the part of the student for such things as (1) participation in cooperative educa- 
tion or study abroad programs, (2) a decision to be a part-time student with a 
reduced course load for reasons of health, necessary outside employment, or 
parental responsibilities, or (3) attempting dual degrees, double majors, or aca- 
demic minors. In other cases the length of time to graduation may be prolonged 
beyond the eighth semester as a result of (4) incomplete or inadequate secondary 
school background requiring some additional compensatory, developmental, or 
prerequisite courses, (5) poor academic performance in the freshman year or 
early semesters, or (6) late changes of curriculum. 

Semester-by-Semester Displays— The requirements for many curricula 
throughout this section are set forth in semester-by-semester displays. One pur- 
pose for these displays is to illustrate how certain sequences of courses and 
prerequisites may be scheduled. Another purpose is to reflect whether courses 
are normally offered in the fall or the spring semester. Otherwise, the semester- 
by-semester displays are merely advisory and not mandatory. The typical semes- 
ter schedule shown in the displays may not be the appropriate one for many 
students. Students are required to consult with their faculty advisers prior to 
registration each semester. 

Limited D Grades — Some colleges and departments have established limita- 
tions on the use of D grades in certain courses or categories of courses for 
satisfying graduation requirements. 

Grade Point Average in Major— Some departments have established gra- 
duation requirements of a grade point average of 2.0 on all courses attempted in 



86 



the major at NCSU or a "C" or better in some or all major courses. Such a 
requirement is in addition to the University grade point average requirement of 
2.0 for all courses attempted at NCSU. Students are encouraged to inquire about 
specific requirements in majors of interest. 

Residence Requirements— To be eligible for a bachelor's degree, a student 
must be enrolled in a degree program and must have earned at least 30 of his or 
her last 45 hours of credit through NCSU courses. Individual departments 
and/or colleges may have additional residence requirements. 
Note: The College of Engineering has a policy that transfer students normally must 
earn at least U8 of their last 60 hours of credit at NCSU while enrolled as degree 
candidates. 

MINORS 

Some departments at NCSU offer undergraduate minors for students wishing 
a systematic program of study in an area outside their major. All minors require 
at least 15 credit hours and may be either departmental or interdepartmental. 
Courses within the minor program may be used to satisfy any of the general 
requirements, including free electives, of a major curriculum. Minors are com- 
pletely optional, the only requirement being that a student may not minor in the 
same discipline as their major. Students pursuing a minor must consult with a 
minor adviser on a plan of work and must file a copy of this plan with their major 
adviser at least one semester before graduation. Satisfactory completion of the 
minor will be noted on the final transcript following graduation. (See "Academic 
Fields of Study and Degrees" in this catalog for a listing of available minors.) 

TWO DEGREES 

Students who have satisfactorily completed the requirements for more than 
one bachelor's degree may, upon the recommendation of their deans, be awarded 
two bachelor's degrees at the same or at different commencement exercises. To 
earn two degrees students register in one school or department and, with the 
cooperation of the second school or department, work out their program to cover 
the requirements for both. Students must file an approved Double Majors Only 
Curriculum Change Form with Registration and Records, 1000 Harris Hall. An 
Application for Degree Form must be submitted for each degree. 

TRANSCRIPTS OF ACADEMIC RECORD 

A transcript is an exact copy of a student's permanent academic record at the 
time it is issued. A fee of two dollars is charged for each transcript. 

No official transcript may be issued to or for a student who is indebted to the 
University until such indebtedness has been paid or satisfactorily adjusted. 

Official transcripts are issued only upon the written request of the student to 
Registration and Records, Box 7313, NCSU, Raleigh, North Carolina 27695- 
7313.

The academic programs in the college represent a unique blending of the agricultural 
and life sciences. Agriculture is a very diverse industry that touches everyone's life in some 
way or another. The life sciences provide foundations for studying medical and health- 
related disciplines as well as environmental sciences and molecular biology.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

Students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences have numerous opportunities to 
take part in broadening extracurricular activities. Most departments have student organi- 
zations that provide professional as well as social experience. Representatives of these clubs 
form the Agri-Life Council. This council is the student organization representing the 
College. Student tours provide an opportunity to see firsthand the application of classroom 
principles. In addition, students representing agrimarketing, agronomy, animal science, 
horticultural science, food science, poultry science and soil science compete regionally and 
nationally in a number of activities providing student members a chance to learn by travel 
as well as by participation. 

CURRICULUM OFFERINGS AND REQUIREMENTS 

A freshman enrolling in Agriculture and Life Sciences has common core courses the first 
year— courses appropriate in all curricula. This approach allows the student time to 
explore various programs before selecting a curriculum. The student selects a major in a 
department or interdisciplinary program. All departments offer science curricula 
(intended primarily for students who anticipate attending graduate or professional school): 
several technology curricula; and the Agricultural Business Management curriculum is 
offered in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. 



Departmental majors are offered as follows: 

Science— agricultural economics, animal science, applied sociology, biochemistry, bio- 
logical and agricultural engineering (joint program with the College of Engineering), 
botany, fisheries and wildlife sciences (joint program with the College of Forest Resources), 
food science, horticultural science, medical technology, microbiology, poultry science, and 
zoologj'. Preprofessional courses are offered in the science curriculum track. 

Technology— agricultural systems technology, animal science, food science, horticultu- 
ral science and poultry science. 

Business— agricultural business management is offered through the Department of 
Agricultural and Resource Economics. A concentration in biological sciences and the 
opportunity for double majoring in business and other programs are available. 

Interdepa rtmental and Interdisciplinary Programs— These curricula offer the opportun- 
ity to select broad curriculum majors that involve two or more departments or colleges: 

Agronomy— A technical curriculum dealing with the fundamentals of crop production 
and soil management. The curriculum is administered by the Departments of Crop Science 
and Soil Science. 

Biological Sciences— A curriculum with emphasis on biological and physical sciences, 
especially designed for graduate or professional courses requiring a biology background. 

Natural Resources — A curriculum concentrating on the use, management and 
improvement of natural resources. The curriculum is administered jointly by the College of 
Agriculture and Life Sciences, the College of Forest Resources and the College of Physical 
and Mathematical Sciences. 

In addition to these cited curricula, a number of arrangements are available that provide 
the student an opportunity to select areas of course concentration.

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences awards approximately 300 scholarships 
each year on a combination of selection factors including merit, financial need and 
leadership. 

JEFFERSON SCHOLARS IN AGRICULTURE/LIFE SCIENCES AND THE HUMANITIES 

(See also College of Humanities and Social Sciences) 

The Thomas Jefferson Scholars Program in Agriculture/Life Sciences and the Humani- 
ties is a joint program of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of 
Humanities and Social Sciences. It is a double degree which permits participants to have 
two concentrations: one in an area of agriculture/life sciences and one in an area of 
humanities/social sciences. The double degree program may be individually designed to 
meet each student's particular interests and career goals. The purpose of the program is to 
produce potential leaders in agriculture and the life sciences who have not only technical 
expertise but also an appreciation for the social, political, and cultural issues that affect 
decision-making. 

Each spring a number of entering freshmen are chosen to receive scholarships to partici- 
pate in the Jefferson program. In addition, other qualified students may choose to pursue a 
double major in agriculture/life sciences and the humanities under the Jefferson program.

The Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics serves agricultural, resource 
and related industries through its extension, research and teaching programs. Applying 
principles of economics and related disciplines, these programs develop understanding of 
contemporary economic and business problems and equip students with a knowledge of 
business organization fundamentals and decision-making skills useful in the operation and 
management of business firms. 

The Department offers undergraduate programs leading to Bachelor of Science degrees 
in agricultural business management and in agricultural economics. A concentration in 
biological sciences business management is offered within the agricultural business man- 
agement program. The Department also offers a natural resources economics and man- 
agement concentration within the campus-wide degree program leading to a Bachelor of 
Science degree in natural resources. See natural resources curriculum. 

The agricultural business management program prepares graduates for management, 
marketing, sales, finance and related careers. The agricultural economics program pro- 
vides a similar background in economics and business, together with the opportunity for 
more extensive coursework in basic and applied sciences, and it prepares graduates for 
business careers and advanced study. The concentration in biological sciences business 
management prepares graduates for management, marketing, and sales careers in fields 
such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, health care, environmental protection, food pro- 
cessing and finance dealing with biological issues. This concentration is designed to be an 
attractive option for students with a strong background and interest in science who seek 
alternatives to technical science careers. The natural resources economics and manage- 
ment curriculum prepares graduates for careers as managers and administrators with 
businesses and government agencies responsible for natural resources development and/or 
waste management. 

For a description of related programs offered within the College of Management, see the 
listings for the Departments of Accounting, Business Management and Economics.

Animal Science is a broad field centered on the biology, production, management, and 
care of domestic animals. Animals have, throughout history, provided man with a major 
source of food, fiber, pleasure and companionship. Undergraduate students study subjects 
related to various phases of animal science. Courses are offered in anatomy, physiology, 
nutrition, genetics, and management, and there are opportunities for the application of 
basic scientific training in the husbandry areas. Options for course selection by each 
student make it possible for those with varying backgrounds and wide-ranging interests to 
become involved in stimulating and rewarding experiences. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Opportunities for animal scientists are boundless and the areas of emphasis are diverse. 
Animal science graduates are qualified for positions in a wide variety of areas such as: 
livestock production, animal management, feed and animal health product companies, 
livestock marketing, food processing industries, feedlot managers, management con- 
sultants, state and federal departments of agriculture, breed associations, education, 
financial institutions, livestock publications, technical service managers, animal techni- 
cians, media specialists, agricultural extension service and public relations. Animal scien- 
tists can be found across the nation and round the world in all phases of production, 
research, sales, service, business and education. Many students in pre-veterinary medicine 
obtain degrees in animal science. Students may elect graduate study, after which they will 
find opportunities in teaching, research, and extension. See listing of graduate degrees 
offered. 

CURRICULA IN ANIMAL SCIENCE 

The degree of Bachelor of Science with a major in animal science may be obtained under 
either the science or industry curricula offered in the College of Agriculture and Life 
Sciences. The science curriculum (SAS) is designed for students with interest in advanced 
study in disciplines such as physiology, nutrition, and genetics. Many students in pre- 
veterinary medicine (SPV) are enrolled in this curriculum pursuing a Bachelor of Science 
Degree in Animal Science. The industry (IAS) curriculum is for students interested in 
entry into the animal industry or allied businesses. It offers flexibility in complementing 
animal science with business, economics, and applied science course work.

Biological and Agricultural Engineering is the engineering discipline that uses engi- 
neering principles to solve problems and improve situations involving biological and agri- 
cultural systems. The goals are to improve efficiency, conserve natural resources, protect 
the environment and, in general, to contribute to improving the quality of life as impacted 
by biological and agricultural systems. 

Two curricula are offered, Biological and Agricultural Engineering and Agricultural 
Systems Technology. The Biological and Agricultural Engineering curriculum, which is 
accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET), leads to the 
degree Bachelor of Science in Biological and Agricultural Engineering. Graduates of the 
Agricultural Systems Technology curriculum receive the degree Bachelor of Science in 
Agricultural Systems Technology. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Graduates of the Biological and Agricultural Engineering curriculum are qualified for 
positions in design, development and research in public institutions and in industry. This 
curriculum also provides adequate preparation for post-graduate work leading to 

104 



advanced degrees. (See listing of graduate degrees offered.) Those receiving degrees in 
Agricultural Systems Technology are qualified for positions in sales, services, and man- 
agement of agribusinesses such as farm machinery, irrigation systems, etc.; as county 
agents or farmers; and for various types of agricultural advisory work. 

CURRICULUM IN BIOLOGICAL AND AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING 
ENGINEERING PROGRAM 

The engineering curriculum provides an educational program for students which uni- 
quely prepares them for dealing with engineering problems in the biological and agricul- 
tural areas. Emphasis is placed on basic science and engineering courses such as mathe- 
matics, physics, mechanics, biology, soils, and thermodynamics which provide a sound 
background for the application of engineering to agricultural and biological problems. 

Since biological and agricultural engineering involves the disciplines of biology, agricul- 
ture and engineering, the curriculum is jointly administered by the Colleges of Agriculture 
and Life Sciences and Engineering. Undergraduate freshmen entering this curriculum 
should enroll in the College of Engineering undesignated program and indicate BAU as 
their curriculum choice. After successfully completing the Engineering undesignated 
requirements the student will enter the Department of Biological and Agricultural 
Engineering. 

For the engineering program in biological and agricultural engineering, refer to the 
College of Engineering section of the catalog. 

AGRICULTURAL SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY CURRICULUM 

The Agricultural Systems Technology curriculum is intended to provide a broad over- 
view of agricultural systems. The curriculum integrates courses from the physical, biologi- 
cal, and earth sciences with courses in agricultural production, mechanization, and man- 
agement. Graduates are prepared to apply shop, mechanical, and information technology to 
the farm or agribusiness. 

Listed below are the departmental requirements in the agricultural systems technology 
program.

NUTRITION CONCENTRATION 

The nutrition concentration follows the general curricular requirements for the biologi- 
cal sciences program, except that students must take four courses in nutrition: FS 400, 
NTR 415, NTR 490, and NTR 516. 

MINOR IN NUTRITION 

The minor in nutrition will provide knowledge of the principles of nutrition that are 
needed to formulate balanced diets and to evaluate information and policies concerning 
foods and dietary practices. Students may select courses to emphasize human or animal 
nutrition or a combination of these. For additional information consult Nutrition Program 
220B Polk (515-2763). 

MINOR IN BIOLOGY 

The minor in Biological Sciences is open to all interested baccalaureate students with the 
exception of Zoology and Botany majors, but is intended primarily to enhance the programs 
of students whose major field is outside the Biological Sciences area. Students pursuing a- 
minor in Biological Sciences will become familar with fundamental principles of biology 
and gain a broad-based perspective of the biological sciences. The minor requires a min- 
imum of 17 credit hours. The minor program is flexible so that students may take courses in 
areas of individual interest.

The instructional program provides classroom, laboratory, and field experience in the 
major areas of plant science. Undergraduates majoring in botany are given a broad 
background in the humanities and physical sciences and are encouraged to participate in 



107 



independent study in the senior year. Majors, as preprofessionals in the plant sciences, are 
prepared for advanced study in botany and other biological fields, as well as in the applied 
plant sciences such as horticulture, crop science, plant pathology, resource management 
and environmental biology. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

The undergraduate degree is an excellent preprofessional degree in the plant sciences. 
Many majors continue with graduate studies; see list of graduate degrees. After obtaining a 
graduate degree, the undergraduate major will be qualified for teaching positions in 
community and junior colleges, colleges and universities, for research positions in federal 
and state government laboratories and in private industry. 

Research technician positions in many life science areas in governmental and industrial 
laboratories are also career possibilities. The field of biotechnology provides additional 
technical opportunities. Field botanists and naturalists find employment in state and 
national park systems and nature interpretation programs. 

CURRICULUM IN BOTANY 

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in botany is offered under the science 
curriculum of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. (See the freshman year pro- 
gram and other basic requirements.) 

The Bachelor of Science degree with a double concentration— one in economics, English, 
history, philosophy or political science, and another in botany— is available in the College of 
Humanities and Social Sciences. For details, refer to the section on "College of Humanities 
and Social Sciences," in this catalog.

MINOR IN BOTANY 

The 15 credit minor in Botany is offered to any undergraduate degree student interested 
in gaining a basic knowledge of plants. It is intended both to complement other curricula 
that are related to the plant sciences and to give students a basic appreciation of plants. 
Such appreciation includes an understanding of plant-human interactions, plant structure 
and how plants function, plant identification, and the pervasive roles of plants and plant 
products in human society. It is not intended to prepare students for a professional career in 
Botany, and additional courses are recommended for students who plan graduate work in 
the plant sciences.

For graduates w^ith advanced degrees in entomology, opportunities include research, 
teaching, and extension positions in colleges and universities: research, development, 
production, control, and sales positions in private industries; consultative positions in pest 
management: curatorial positions in museums; and research and regulatory positions with 
state and federal agencies. 

UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM 

There is no entomology undergraduate major. Those students with a primary interest in 
entomology are advised to take the general biological sciences curriculum and the minor in 
entomolog>'.

Horticulture is a dynamic segment of agriculture. The development, growth, distribu- 
tion, and utilization of fruits, vegetables, flowers and ornamental plants plus the arts of 
floral design and landscaping enrich our lives with nutritious foods and more attractive 
surroundings. North Carolina's varied climatic conditions favor the production of a wide 
variety of horticultural crops on a commercial scale as well as the development of parks and 
gardens. The population and amount of industry in the state are increasing, and with them 
the use of ornamental plants. Designers skilled in residential and commercial landscaping, 
interior plantscaping, and plant maintenance are in demand. All this in turn has created a 
growth in interest in horticulture education. 

Undergraduate programs in horticultural science offer a broad based education in 
physical and biological sciences and a sound cultural background. Students can concen- 
trate in areas of fruit and vegetable science, floriculture, woody ornamental plant science, 
landscape horticulture, or pursue a general approach which encompasses all the special- 
ties. They are prepared for graduate study or for diverse professional service. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Horticulture graduates fill positions in production, processing, sales and service. Among 
these are county extension agents; vocational agricultural teachers; landscapers and land- 
scape contractors; farm operators; orchard, nursery, greenhouse and flower shop man- 
agers; research, production and promotional specialists with commercial seed, floral, 
fertilizer, chemical and food companies; inspectors and quality control technologists; 
USDA specialists and as leaders in other phases of agricultural and industrial develop- 
ments. The student may also prepare for a career in research, teaching, extension, etc. in 
horticulture.

The microbiology program provides basic preparation in microbiology and immunology 
for professional microbiologists and students in other sciences, and an awareness of the 
microbial world as it relates to our daily lives for non-science majors. Microbiology is 
concerned with the growth and development, physiology, classification, ecology, genetics 
and other aspects of the life processes of an array of microscopic, generally single-celled, 
organisms and viruses. These organisms frequently serve as model systems for elucidation 



116 



of fundamental processes that are common to all living cells. Most of the major discoveries 
that have produced the spectacular advances in biology during the past decade have 
resulted from studies of microbial systems. Future developments in biotechnology, produc- 
tion of food and fuel, and human and animal health, will rely heavily on understanding 
microbial processes. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Microbiologists are employed in university, governmental and industrial research labor- 
atories, diagnostic and quality control laboratories, teaching, and technical sales and 
service positions. 

MICROBIOLOGY CURRICULUM 

The microbiology curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science degree, is designed to 
provide the student with a strong foundation in mathematics, chemistry, and physics, and 
skills in oral and written communication. The student will also gain broad general knowl- 
edge of molecular and cellular biology as well as a foundation in the basic areas of micro- 
biology and immunology. Graduates of this curriculum will be prepared for work in 
research laboratories and production facilities or for further study in graduate or profes- 
sional schools.

Associate Professor H. J. Kleiss, Undergraduate Coordinator, Soil Science 

Wise use of all our natural resources (soil, water, air, minerals, flora, fauna and people) 
for the benefit of current and future members of society is the goal of natural resource 
management. This important challenge recognizes the interdependence of people with 
their environment and requires an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to solving 
society's resource problems. Population growth, rising incomes, life style changes and 
urbanization lead to more intensive use of all natural resources. These trends present 
challenges to resource managers who must be trained in the basic principles of several 
disciplines in order to develop and apply sound management strategies to our resource 
problems. Natural resource professionals must understand resources and the social sys- 
tems governing their use. They must be able to work in teams to analyze potential effects of 
resource use and to design ways to make efficient use of natural and environmental 
resources for current and future generations. 

To accommodate the breadth and complexity of natural resource management, the 
Bachelor of Science degree in natural resources is a campus-wide program involving three 
colleges and four departments that administer seven concentrations. A common core of 84 
hours of coursework provides a balanced foundation in communication, humanities, social 
sciences, mathematics and the natural sciences. The core course requirements include a 
freshman orientation course and a senior level applications course that natural resource 
majors in all concentrations must complete. Within the College of Agriculture and Life 
Sciences, three concentrations are available: Economics and Management, Soil Resources 
and Soil and Water Systems. For information on other concentrations see Forestry and 
Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.

The Department of Poultry Science provides instruction in the principles of vertically 
integrated poultry production and in such related fields as nutrition, physiology, genetics, 
toxicology and biotechnology. Through teaching, research and extension, the department 
serves students, poultry producers and allied industries. Poultry production has increased 
rapidly during the last two decades and ranks first in North Carolina as a source of 
agricultural income. North Carolina ranks third nationally in the production of poultry 
products: the climatic and economic conditions in the state provide a sound base for 
continued expansion. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

The change from small farm operations to large commercial poultry enterprises has 
created more specialized positions than there are available poultry graduates. Production 
oriented positions and off-the-farm operations in activities such as processing and distribu- 
tion offer new job opportunities. The allied industries— feed, equipment, financing, phar- 
maceutical and other supplies— need more employees trained in poultry science. Graduates 
hold positions as managers and field representatives for businesses identified with, or 
serving the poultry industry. Graduates are also employed in communication and public 
relations and as teachers and extension and research specialists. Some graduates have their 
own poultry businesses. 

CURRICULA IN POULTRY SCIENCE 

Students desiring the Bachelor of Science with a major in poultry science may choose 
either the science or technology curriculum offered by the Department of Poultry Science. 
(See listing of graduate degrees.) One may obtain a double major in certain other curricula 
through careful use of electives and/or summer school attendance. The student should 
consult the undergraduate advisers in the department(s) concerned. Currently, the pre- 
veterinary science student may utilize all requirements toward a Bachelor of Science 
degree in the science option. 

(See the freshman year and basic requirements for College of Agriculture and Life 
Sciences.) 

SCIENCE PROGRAM 

This curriculum is for the student interested in the basic biological and physical sciences. 
The student is better prepared for advanced study in various disciplines such as genetics, 
nutrition, physiology and pathology. Several pre-veterinary students are currently 
enrolled in this curriculum and are seeking a Bachelor of Science degree in poultry science. 
(See Pre-professional Program in Veterinary Medicine).

PRE-PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM IN 
VETERINARY MEDICINE 

Students with interests in veterinary medicine who enroll in the undergraduate pro- 
grams at North Carolina State University should pursue a baccalaureate degree in a major 
area that fulfills the requirements of the pre-professional program. Pre-professional 
courses are designed to give students a background in animal health, poultry health and 
laboratory animal care. At the present time a preveterinary curriculum is offered in the 
College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. A student may major in animal science, poultry 
science, biochemistry, zoology, biological sciences, or biological sciences options, as well as 
in other science curricula. The choice of the degree program should be carefully considered 
to encompass alternate career objectives. If a student is accepted to veterinary college 
before completion of his or her undergraduate degree, some course credits may be trans- 
ferred from the veterinary program toward completion of the Bachelor of Science degree. 
Arrangements for this procedure should be made with the degree-granting college or 
department prior to entering veterinary college. 

The courses listed below are minimum requirements for all students applying for 
entrance to the College of Veterinary Medicine at N. C. State University. A grade of C or 
better on each course and an overall grade point average of 2.75 or above is required for 
application.

This department teaches students the principles and techniques for understanding 
human group behavior. More specifically the department seeks: (1) to educate students to 
understand communities and organizations and the people who live and work within them; 
(2) to qualify exceptional students at the undergraduate and graduate level for sociological 
research, teaching, and extension careers; (3) to solve problems in human group relations. 
Applied sociology is good training for a wide variety of careers. It is useful for any job which 
involves work with people, organizations or communities. It is also good preparation for 
professional careers in local government, personnel relations, law, the clergy, business and 
management. 

CURRICULUM IN APPLIED SOCIOLOGY 

The degree of Bachelor of Science with a major in applied sociology is offered under the 
science curriculum of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. In addition to topics in 
agricultural and community sociology, majors in this department have the option of con- 
centrating in criminal justice.

The Department of Soil Science trains students in fundamentals of soils, develops an 
understanding and appreciation of soils as a resource, and presents principles of soil 
management and utilization for both farm and non-agricultural purposes. Soils constitute 
one of the largest capital investments in farming, and proper soil management is essential 
for efficient production. Future world food needs will require people conversant in soil 
resources and use of fertilizers. Soil properties are important considerations in urban- 
suburban planning and development. Also, knowledge of soil and its interactions with 
potential pollutants is essential in maintaining environmental quality. Therefore, the 
demand for people trained in soils by private consultants, agribusiness, research, service, 
planning-development, education and conservation-related agencies should continue to be 
great. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Soil Science graduates fill positions of leadership and service in land resource planning, 
conservation, natural resource management and agriculture. Among these are opportuni- 
ties as farm operators and managers, county agricultural extension agents and employees 
of other public advisory agencies. Soil Conservation Service and other conservation-related 
agencies concerned with soil resources. Graduates also serve as technical representatives 
and salesmen in fertilizer companies and in other agribusiness activities. Many opportuni- 
ties exist for private consulting soil scientists who serve a variety of clientele needs. 
Environmental concerns usually require soil science expertise, especially in land-based 
waste management. 

Provision is made for students wishing a more thorough training in biological sciences, 
chemistry, mathematics and physics leading to graduate study. (See listing of graduate 
degrees.) Students with advanced degrees have wide opportunities in teaching, research, 
service and extension with state, federal and private educational and research institutions 
and agencies. 

UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULA 

The Bachelor of Science degree may be obtained with majors in agronomy or natural 
resources. The agronomy program is administered jointly with the Crop Science Depart- 
ment. A soil science concentration is available in the agronomy curriculum. Two soils 
concentrations are available in the natural resources curriculum, soil resources and soil 
and water resource systems. (The agronomy and natural resources curricula are shown 
earlier under College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.) 

MINOR IN SOIL SCIENCE 

The academic minor in Soil Science is offered to students desiring a strong knowledge of 
the principles of Soil Science to complement their major. It is intended to strengthen the 
understanding of basic physical and chemical soil properties that would be relevant to a 
student's particular land management interest. These interests may include but are not 
limited to conservation, forestry, geology, landscape architecture, horticulture, biological 
and agricultural engineering, agricultural business management, or agricultural educa- 
tion. Fifteen hours of required courses and three hours of electives are necessary to com- 
plete the minor.

The Department of Zoology provides undergraduate and graduate instruction in special- 
ized biological sciences areas. Undergraduates study all levels of biological organization 
from the molecular to the community. Zoology majors are well prepared for graduate work 
in zoology and related fields of sciences. (See listing of graduate degrees.) Participation in 
supervised programs of research is strongly encouraged. A strong science background is 
provided for students planning to enter dentistry, medicine, optometry, veterinary medi- 
cine and allied health sciences, such as medical technology. Ecology, including wildlife, 
fisheries, parasitology and marine biology are strong areas. Cellular and molecular biol- 
ogy, including neurobiology, also are emphasized. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Bachelor of Science graduates in zoology have many career options. Graduates are well 
prepared for employment in various government agencies or private industries. Graduates 
may continue their education with studies leading to advanced degrees in many areas of 
biological sciences such as zoology, cell biology, wildlife and fisheries science, marine 
science and biomedical subdisciplines. Many also choose to enter professional schools for 
degrees in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine and other health related areas. 

UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULA 

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in zoology, fisheries and wildlife sciences or 
medical technology is offered under the science curriculum of the College of Agriculture 
and Life Sciences. Within these majors a student may specialize depending upon interest 
and ability. 

The zoology curriculum prepares students for graduate school, medical, dental, and 
veterinary schools. Certain professional schools have specific requirements which differ 
slightly from the zoology curriculum. Students should consult catalogs of specific profes- 
sional schools to ensure completion of any special requirements. 

Other curricula include the fisheries and wildlife sciences program and the medical 
technology program. The clinical year for the medical technology program is by competi- 
tive selection at an affiliated hospital. Students are advised by faculty in their special areas 
of interest.

The North Carolina Agricultural Research Service is the agricultural, life sciences, 
forestry, and home economics research agency of the State of North Carolina. It is funded 
principally by appropriations from the North Carolina General Assembly, federal formula 
funds and grants and contracts. 

The purpose of the N. C. Agricultural Research Service is to conduct research on (1) the 
development and maintenance of an effective agricultural and forestry industry in North 
Carolina, including economically sound sources of supplies and equipment needed in 
agriculture and forestry and market outlets for the products of agriculture and forestry, (2) 
the improvement of rural homes, rural life and rural environment, and (3) the maintenance 
of a reliable supply of agricultural and forestry products for the consuming public. This 
requires research to solve current problems and research to provide a foundation of 
scientific knowledge in the biological, physical and social sciences. 

The N. C. Agricultural Research Service faculty brings well-trained personnel to the 
University, whose teaching in many specialized fields of agriculture, biology and the social 
sciences assures the maintenance of curricula of high standards. It contributes to the 
advanced training of students who are destined to become the leaders, teachers and investi- 
gators necessary in the maintenance of agriculture and forestry on a sound economic plane. 

PUBLICATIONS 

The N. C. Agricultural Research Service publishes bulletins and scientific papers on 
research conducted by the staff. Copies of bulletins may be obtained from the Department 
of Agricultural Communications and scientific papers from the author. 

SERVICES 

The faculty of the N. C. Agricultural Research Service conduct original and other 
research bearing directly on and contributing to the establishment and maintenance of 
permanent and effective agricultural and forestry industries in North Carolina. This 
research includes field and laboratory experimentation in the biological, physical, social, 
and environmental sciences. Primary emphasis is given to the production, processing, 
distribution, and consumption of the many agricultural and forestry commodities pro- 
duced throughout the state. Also, major attention is given to research programs aimed at 
improving the quality of life of both rural and urban peoples.

COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE 

D. F. Bateman, Dean of Agriculture and Life Sciences 

R. C. Wells, Associate Dean and Director of the Cooperative Extension Service 

R. E. Phillips, Associate Director of Extension 

The Cooperative Extension Service of North Carolina State University is a cooperative 
undertaking among the United States Department of Agriculture, the State of North 
Carolina, the 100 counties in the state and the Cherokee Indian Reservation. Its work is 
supported by federal funds made available under the Smith-Lever Act of 1914, as amended 
by state and county appropriations, and by grants and contracts. 

The federal and state appropriations are used to maintain an administrative and special- 
ist staff and to pay a portion of the salary and the travel expenses of the county extension 
agents. Under this cooperative arrangement, the Cooperative Extension Service serves as 
the "educational arm" of the United States Department of Agriculture and as the "field 
faculty" of North Carolina State University in the areas of agriculture and natural re- 
sources; family living; 4-H and youth; and community and rural development. 

The primary purpose of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service is to provide 
the people of the state with the latest and best information— particularly that which is 
related to agriculture and natural resources; home economics and youth; and rural 
development — and help them to interpret and use this information in building a more 
prosperous and satisfying life. 

This program has sufficient flexibility to permit special attention to the problems, needs 
and interests of the people in each county. County Advisory Councils are utilized to deter- 
mine and prioritize the county educational program content. Assistance is given to individ- 
uals, families, communities, agricultural and seafood processing and marketing firms, 
other businesses and certain organizations. This includes work with adults and youth in 
both the city and rural areas. 

In carrying out this educational program, a variety of methods and techniques are 
employed: method and result demonstrations; meetings; visits to farms, homes and busi- 
nesses; organized groups of men, women and youth; tours; leaflets, pamphlets and other 
printed materials and mass media. 

The basic sources of information to be taught through this educational program are the 
findings and recommendations resulting from research conducted by the Agricultural 
Research Service in this and other states and by the United States Department of 
Agriculture.

The Agricultural Institute is a two-year academic program which awards the Associate 
in Applied Science Degree upon successful completion of at least one of eight curricula. The 
Agricultural Institute provides education and training in food, agriculture, horticulture, 
turfgrass management and agribusiness. It is part of the academic programs in the College 
of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University. Provision for the 
Agricultural Institute was made by the 1959 North Carolina General Assembly and 
instruction began in the Fall. 1960. The objective of the Agricultural Institute is to provide 
technical training for those desiring a comprehensive education in the food and agri- 
cultural sciences, agribusiness and related areas. 

133 



The instructional programs of the Agricultural Institute are organized and conducted as 
part of the over-all academic program in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The 
Agricultural Institute is an addition to, and not a substitute for. the college's regular 
degree-granting program. The Agricultural Institute uses the same facilities (classrooms, 
laboratories, farms) as the four-year program. The facilities are used extensively for both 
teaching and observing the application of technologj' in agriculture and other closely 
related areas. 

The faculty for the four-year program are responsible for organizing and teaching 
courses offered by the Agricultural Institute. Emphasis is placed on practical knowledge 
and training, with many courses requiring laboratories for hands-on experiences. The 
Agricultural Institute offers majors in eight areas: Agribusiness Management: Agri- 
cultural Pest Control; Field Crops Technology: Food Processing, Distribution and Service; 
General Agriculture: Livestock Management and Technolog>': Ornamentals and Land- 
scape Technology': and Turfgrass Management. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Rapid technical advancement has been important in changing agriculture from a small 
production industry to the nation's largest industry. Closely associated with production 
agriculture are those areas related to recreation and beautification such as turfgrass 
management, landscaping and ornamental plants. Increased production and consumer 
demand for convenience-type foods have stimulated the food processing industry, in turn 
increasing food distribution requirements. 

Today's complex agriculture requires a large work force. This work force must have 
some technical training and be able to deal with a vast array of problems and opportunities. 
Graduates of the Agricultural Institute have the education and training that is in demand 
by the food and agricultural industries and that permit them to assume responsible posi- 
tions in the agriculture and allied fields. Some career examples are: farm and herd 
managers, golf course superintendents, nursery managers, pest control specialists, quality 
control technicians, food service supervisors, sales and service of agricultural equipment 
and products, food inspectors, lawn care specialists and others. Morejob opportunities than 
graduates make salaries attractive. 

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences maintains a Career Development and 
Placement Office to assist graduates in finding employment. 

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS 

Any individual who has received a diploma from an accredited high school or has passed 
the high school equivalency examination administered by the Department of Community 
Colleges is eligible for admission consideration. Each application will be reviewed and 
evaluated by the Director of the Agricultural Institute.

The School of Design, since its beginning in 1948, has addressed design in the broadest 
sense involving the disciplines of architecture, design, graphic design, industrial design, 
and landscape architecture in a context of educational innovation. While the designer's 
traditional role is understood as that of giving meaningful form to the environment, the 
school gives attention to the larger responsibility of design in human, social, economic, 
political and behavioral terms. The school seeks to develop the designer's perception, 
knowledge base, skills and analytical problem solving abilities. 

The expanding range of career opportunties in design is equaled by the varied interests 
possessed by our students. Admitted through a selective processs, the school's student 
population is highly motivated and heterogeneous. The faculty represents an equally broad 
spectrum of education and professional expertise. The diversity of the faculty, both profes- 
sionally and philosophically, provides unique opportunities for student development. These 
three factors in our educational matrix (career opportunities, student interests, and faculty 
expertise) are supported with a curriclum which affords each student the abilty to shape, 
with faculty advice, a plan of study capable of facilitating his or her interests. While the 
school embraces the design disciplines of architecture, design, graphic design, industrial 
design, and landscape architecture within a departmental structure, it functions as a 
unified educational center, interactive and dedicated to preparing designers who are 
capable of shaping the environment in whatever scale they choose but in response to the 
needs of society. 

CURRICULA AND DEGREES 

The School of Design offers undergraduate instruction leading to a Bachelor of Envi- 
ronmental Design degree in the disciplines of architecture, design, graphic design, indus- 
trial design, and landscape architecture. 

The learning activities for our students are divided into three curriculum areas: (1) 
general education courses including English, mathematics, humanities, social sciences, 
and natural sciences; (2) support courses which deal with bodies of knowledge and skills 
applicable to design including communication and graphics, behavior, environment, his- 
tory and philosophy, physical elements and systems, methods and management (these 
courses are largely taught within the school but include selected University courses as 
well); (3) studio courses providing the arena in which students apply their skills and 
knowledge to problems that are both real and theoretical. These synthetic activities are 
time intensive and are fundamental to design education. 

After the common experience in first year, the studios relate to the student's declared 
disciplinary major. The flexibility of the curriculum plan affords the student the opportun- 
ity to concentrate in a single discipline but facilitates his or her contact with other design 
principles. The curriculum reflects the reality of the environmental marketplace where, in 



135 



addition to their faculty mentors, our students are exposed to a broad range of design 
professionals through guest lectures, juries, projects and workshops. 

Graduate studies are also offered in architecture, landscape architecture and product 
design. See the Graduate Catalog for information on the Master's Degree programs.

In a world of changing social and cultural conditions, economics, technology, urbaniza- 
tion and aesthetic consciousness, the central task of the architect remains-to give meaning- 
ful form to the physical environment. However, these rapid changes force today's architects 
to look at their world differently than did earlier generations. Modern architects must 
concern themselves not only with traditional design issues, but also with such emerging 
concerns as the preservation and adaptive use of older buildings and neighborhoods, energy 
conservation, and the form of rapidly expanding urban centers. The aesthetic revolution of 
the past few decades has freed architects from the rigidity of ealier theory, allowing greater 
diversity and expressiveness in architectural design. 

The architecture curriculum balances professional studies with a broad general educa- 
tion. University requirements in mathematics, English, natural sciences and humanities 
are integrated with architectural design studios and a rich selection of design support 
courses. Central to the curriculum is the design studio-a working laboratory in which 
analysis and synthesis become real and meaningful activities to the architecture student. 

To address the diversity of roles and responsibilities in architecture, the Department of 
Architecture offers several curricula. The undergraduate Bachelor of Environmental 
Design in Architecture is a pre-professional degree that stresses the education of the 
individual and serves as the foundation for advanced study in the discipline. The first year 
is spent on design fundamentals in a curriculum common to all students in the School of 
Design. In the following years students receive a broad introduction to architectural theory, 
history, technology and design process while exploring other educational opportunities 
within the University. 

Following this pre-professional program students may continue their studies in either of 
two professional programs: the one-year, post-graduate Bachelor of Architecture or the 
two-year Master of Architecture program (see the NCSU Graduate Catalog for informa- 
tion on the latter program). Entry into both advanced programs is competitive; to be 
accepted, students must demonstrate potential for professional accomplishment, capability 
in design, and satisfy a specific set of professionally-oriented undergraduate course 
requirements. Many students spend one or more years gaining professional experience in 
architecture firms or related fields before pursuing the advanced degrees. 

Educational enrichment is an important characteristic of the architectural program. 
The School of Design regularly presents public lectures by leading professionals and 
exhibitions of design and art work. Electives are available in related disciplines-painting, 
sculpture, photography, landscape architecture, industrial and graphic design. Further 
design exposure is available through a variety of foreign study programs and field trips to 
buildings and urban centers of architectural interest.

OPPORTUNITIES 

Graduates with the pre-professional Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture 
degree pursue careers in architectural offices, building construction, development, and 
public agencies. North Carolina and many other states have restricted professional licens- 
ing in architecture to holders of accredited advanced degrees such as the Bachelor of 
Architecture and the Master of Architecture. This educational requirement must be fol- 
lowed by three years of professional internship and completion of a comprehensive exami- 
nation to qualify for professional certification as an architect.

In the Bachelor of Environmental Design degree, design is used as the vehicle for a 
broadly based, multidisciplinary undergraduate education experience which fully utilizes 
the range of diverse faculty capabilities. Through flexible curriculum structure and course 
sequencing, students with a faculty advisor are able to assemble optional learning paths 
which meet their individual needs. This degree provides an alternative for students who 
have specific interests and capabilities outside the school's existing degree tracks and 
students who desire a broader design education taking advantage of the range and diversity 
of the school's offerings. Those students selecting the Bachelor of Environmental Design 
degree may wish to use it as a foundation for later graduate study in a specific design 
discipline. 

139 



The Department of Design firmly believes that there is an essential need for students in a 
research and technically based university to engage in course work that fosters creative 
thinking. To meet this need, the Department of Design offers a Minor in Design, available to 
majors in any field. Four specific options are currently available: fibers and surface design, 
painting, drawing, and sculpture. To complete the minor, 9 hours of prerequisites and 15 
hours of specific design courses are required. 

The Department of Design also provides a common first year experience for all students 
entering the School of Design. Design Fundamentals focuses on exposure to basic design 
concepts and provides a general introduction to the fields of design.

Before entering into a minor in the Department of Design, students must first complete 9 
hours of prerequisite courses which provide an essential foundation in design: 

DF 111— Two-Dimensional Design for Non-Design Majors 

DF 112— Three-Dimensional Design for Non-Design Majors 

DN311— F-Drawing 
To complete the minor program, students will take 15 hours of design courses, 12 hours of 
which must be above the 100 level, at least 6 of which must be at the 300 level or above. Four 
specific options are available in the minor: fibers and surface design, painting, drawing, 
and sculpture. Courses are chosen from a list of recommended courses in each option in 
consultation with the adviser. Application forms may be obtained from the department 
head. Each student will be assigned an adviser consistent with his/her option selection. 



GRAPHIC DESIGN 

Brooks Hall 

Professor M. Davis, Head of of the Department 

Professors: M. Davis, A. Lowrey, Associate Professor.M. Scotford, Assistant Professors: K. Bailey, A. Blauvelt, J. Spadaro. 

Graphic Design is the process of bringing meaningful visual form to communication. 
Graphic designers translate communication goals through printed, environmental, and 
electronic presentations of information and ideas. Graphic designers use words (typo- 
graphy), and images (photographs, illustrations, diagrams, abstract shapes, textures, lines, 
and color) to express qualitative messages for the purposes of informing, persuading, and 
inciting to action individuals and audiences who are on the receiving end of communication. 
Graphic designers are active in all aspects of the communication arts. They design books, 
magazines, and newspapers as part of the publishing industry. Graphic designers create 
printed materials, such as annual reports, newsletters, stationery, and collateral literature 
as part of the effort to establish memorable and cohesive "identities" for institutions, 
businesses, and government. The designers who work on these projects are employed by 
advertising agencies, design consulting offices, or by the corporation or government itself 
as part of an internal communications department. Institutions, such as museums and 
colleges, employ graphic designers as members of their staffs to design and produce 
publications, posters, and exhibitions. Graphic designers are also responsible for packag- 
ing design, signs in the environment, film titling, television on-air graphics, and computer 
screen displays and programs. 

The Bachelor of Environmental Design in Graphic Design curriculum includes study of 
the visual, theoretical, and technical aspects of the discipline. The curriculum provides 
experiences in analysis of communication problems, inventive idea and visual form devel- 
opment, implementation of design strategies, and critical evaluation. Instruction in com- 
puter assisted design is integrated within typography, photography, and graphic design 
studio courses.

Industrial Design is the profession concerned with all the human aspects of machine- 
made products and their relationship to the environment. The designer is responsible for 
the planning and design of products. The designer is responsible for the product's human 
factors engineering, safety, shape, color, texture, maintenance and cost. Industrial design 
deals with consumer, as well as industrial products. In order to achieve these ends, 
designers must be involved in three major design and research activities: human behavior, 
the human-machine relationship, and the product itself. 

Areas of design investigation include furniture, housewares, appliances, transportation,

Landscape Architecture is the profession concerned with location, design, and develop- 
ment of residential, commercial, institutional, recreational and other community land uses. 
Preservation and conservation of visual amenities, unique natural areas, and historic 



143 



resources are important components of landscape architecture. The student studies history 
of landscape architecture, planting design, materials and construction, site planning, 
graphic communication and community design. These subjects are applied to actual design 
problems in landscape architecture studios. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

There are approximately 30,000 practicing landscape architects in the U.S. and growth 
of the profession is projected as among the "Top Ten" by the U. S. Bureau of Labor 
Statistics. Landscape architects are employed by private firms and by agencies of govern- 
ment such as parks and recreation, forestry, planning and envirnomental protection. Many 
pursue graduate degrees, qualifying them for careers in college teaching and more 
advanced assignments.

The College of Education and Psychology is concerned with the problems of human 
development from both psychological and educational perspectives. With emphases upon 
the preparation of middle grades, secondary, and post-secondary teachers, counselors, 
supervisors, administrators and psychologists, the college seeks students w^ho are dedicated 
to the improvement of human beings through education and service and who are sensitive to 
the complexity of teaching/learning processes. The college is composed of the Departments 
of Adult and Community College Education, Counselor Education, Curriculum and 
Instruction, Educational Leadership and Program Evaluation, Mathematics and Science 
Education, Occupational Education and Psychology. 

Undergraduate degree programs are offered in agricultural education, education 
general studies, health occupations education, marketing education for teachers, mathe- 
matics education, science education, technical education, technology education, and psy- 
chology. In addition to being admitted to a curriculum, all teacher education candidates 
must meet program requirements for admission to candidacy in teacher education (includ- 
ing a 2.5 or higher overall grade point average after the sophomore year) and for admission 
to student teaching (including a 2.5 or higher GPA overall and in one's teaching field). 

Graduates of the undergraduate programs in education receive a Bachelor of Science 
degree in education and normally qualify for an "A" certificate to teach in their chosen field. 
Graduates of the undergraduate program in psychology receive a Bachelor of Arts in 
Psychology degree. 

Six degree programs (agricultural education, health occupations education, technology 
education, marketing education, mathematics education and science education lead to 
certification to teach in grades 9-12. The College of Education and Psychology also offers 
middle grades degree programs that leads to certification for grades 6-9 with concentra- 
tions in language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Students seeking this 
certification will graduate with one or two fields of concentration. All teacher education 
graduates also complete the equivalent of a second major, outside of education. 

Professional education courses are provided for those students enrolled in the College of 
Humanities and Social Sciences who wish to become teachers of secondary English, 
French, Spanish, and social studies, with certification for grades 9-12. (See the College of 
Humanities and Social Sciences section of this catalog for information on teacher education 
options.) Students enrolled in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences or in science and 
mathematics departments may double-major in the College of Education and Psychology 
and also obtain a North Carolina secondary teacher's certificate. 

Most of the college's teacher education programs are in fields of teacher shortage. 
Graduates have little difficulty finding teaching positions. Because of limited faculty 
resources, space in some programs is limited. 



146 



Most of the education and psychology programs listed in the following pages also offer 
graduate-level curricula. In addition, the College of Education and Psychology has gradu- 
ate programs in: 

Adult & Community College Education Middle Grades Education 

Counselor Education Occupational Education 

Curriculum & Instruction Reading Education Reading Education 

Education Administration Special Education 

(See the Graduate Catalog or contact faculty members for information on graduate

tural and occupational education; curriculum and instruction and supervision; administra- 
tion; counseling; reading education; special education; mathematics and science education; 
and school psychology. All of the bachelor's level and graduate level certification programs 
are approved by the North Carolina State Board of Education. Also teacher education 
programs are accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Educa- 
tion (NCATE). 

The modern College of Education and Psychology building is named Poe Hall. It includes 
a Learning Resources Library, a Center for Learning Technologies, and an Instructional 
Computing Facility. The building houses laboratories for technology, reading, science, 
psychology, and guidance and testing activities, as well as a children's play area with an 
observation room. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

The College of Education and Psychology has a scholarship program distinct from the 
campus Merit Awards Program. Over 20 scholarships are awarded to undergraduates 
each year, including several scholarships reserved for minority students. 

North Carolina State University is one of 13 institutions participating in the N.C. 
Teaching Fellows Program and has over 200 teaching fellows enrolled. Each fellow 
receives $5,000 per year for four years, in exchange for a commitment to teach for four 
years in the state. 

Other students hold the prestigious Paul Douglas Scholarship or receive awards through 
the State Board of Education's Scholarship Loan Fund for Prospective Teachers and other 
sources. High school counselors receive information about and applications for all of these 
scholarships and awards. 

SCHOLARS AND HONORS PROGRAMS 

The College of Education and Psychology participates in the University Scholars Pro- 
gram, in which selected students each year participate in weekly activities that broaden 
and deepen their University experiences. The Psychology and Occupational Education 
Departments offer an optional curriculum for honors students. There is an honors society in 
Psychology. 

INTERNATIONAL ACTIVITIES 

Several faculty members have been involved in overseas projects in China, Japan, Peru, 
Puerto Rico, and Sri Lanka. Some of the foreign language teacher education students spend 
a year in France or Spain in an exchange program. The enrollment of international 
students in the several education and psychology programs and elsewhere at NCSU also 
offers multi-cultural opportunities without one's leaving the campus.

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION 

Poe Hall (602) 

Associate Professor L. R. Jewell, Coordinator of Advising 

Professor: G. E. Moore: Associate Professors: J. L. Flowers. B. M. Kirby. 

Agricultural education, in its broadest sense, encompasses areas of study which will 
enable one to participate effectively in planning, promoting, and initiating educational 
programs in agriculture. A program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree and is designed 
to prepare teachers of vocational agriculture in the secondary schools and in technical and 
community colleges. The demand for agricultural education teachers exceeds present 
supply. Graduates who obtain certification in the bachelor's program generally have a 
choice of positions in the Carolinas, Virginia, and throughout the nation.

cal education curriculum may specialize in areas related to his/her technical preparation 
and/or previous work experience. Admission to the technical education curriculum is 
limited to students demonstrating proficiency in a given applied technology, i.e., electrical, 
electronics, mechanical, etc. Thus, the program is not open to high school graduates, who 
lack technical preparation and/or experience. Employment opportunities for technical 
education graduates include teaching in community and technical colleges and within 
industry as technical trainers and coordinators of training programs.

'The humanities and social science electives must be chosen from the university's official list of courses. Many courses in 
philosophy, religion, literature, fine arts, history, and foreign language are approved humanities courses. Many courses 
in economics, sociology, anthropologj', political science, psychology, and geography are approved social science courses. 
Specified courses in other areas such as communication, education, design, and multidisciplinary studies also are 
approved as humanities or social sciences. Students are encouraged to select courses in this curriculum area so that each 
of these areas is represented: economics, governmental systems, social systems, and fine arts. 

^hese courses are taken together as a block and completed prior to student teaching. Student teaching is full-time for 
ten weeks during the fall semester only.

Psychology is one of the basic university disciplines. Masteryof some of the knowledge in 
psychology is necessary to practitioners in education, health, social service, social sciences 
and managerial professions. Students holding the bachelor's degree in psychology and 
wishing to apply their psychological studies in a professional capacity generally continue 



164 



their education in a graduate program such as applied or experimental psychology, or in 
such fields as law, medicine, business, social work and a variety of other fields. Students in 
psychology may also choose to enter business or government, often without further training 
beyond the bachelor's degree. There are currently two different programs for undergradu- 
ate majors in psychology: the General Option (PSY), and the Human Resource Develop- 
ment Option (HRD). Each program emphasizes different aspects of the study of psychol- 
ogy. The following sections provide separate descriptions of these programs and their 
current requirements. 

With in each of the options, there are honors tracks which provide special curricula and an 
opportunity for work with faculty on research projects. Students must have completed a 
minimum of 45 semester hours of course work (at least 15 at NCSU) and have a grade point 
average of 3.25 or better to be considered for admission to an honors program. More details 
as to admission and requirements are available from the Psychology Department. 

All undergraduate majors are members of the Psychology Club, which provides a 
number of enrichment activities, including sponsorship of the Carolinas Psychology Con- 
ference. One of the largest undergraduate conferences in the United States, it is held 
annually in cooperation with Meredith College and other Cooperating Raleigh Colleges. 
There is also an active chapter of Psi Chi, the national psychology honor society, which 
provides enrichment to the program. 

PSYCHOLOGY: GENERAL OPTION 

The General Option is oriented toward the student who wants a broad understanding of 
the types of problems with which psychology is concerned and the ways in which psycholo- 
gists approach and attempt to solve these problems. Curriculum requirements in the 
General Option are sufficiently flexible for students to concentrate, if they wish, in another 
area of study as well as psychology, and thereby prepare themselves for a variety of careers 
or professional programs. By wise choice of elective courses, a student can prepare for 
medical, legal, business, or education graduate training, while at the same time acquiringa 
basic background in the social sciences.

MINOR IN COGNITIVE SCIENCE 

The Departments of Psychology and of Philosophy and Religion offer an interdiscipli- 
nary minor in cognitive science. The minor provides a general introduction to contempor- 
ary interdisciplinary research within the framework of the "computer model" mind, and 
offers the student the opportunity for in-depth study of selected topics such as the nature of 
human information processing, the acquisition and use of language, and machine 
intelligence. 

To complete the minor, 15 hours are required, distributed as follows: PSY 320 (Cognitive 
Processes); PSY 340 (Ergonomics) or PSY 545 (Human Information Processing); PHI 331 
(Philosophy of Language); PHI 332 (Philosophy of Psychology); PHI (PSY) 425/525 (Intro- 
duction to Cognitive Science). 

MINOR IN PSYCHOLOGY 

The Psychology Department offers a minor in psychology to majors in any field except 
psychology. To complete the minor, eighteen hours of courses are required, six of these 
hours in the basic science of psychology, and nine in the applied aspects of psychology. PSY 
200 is a required prerequisite. All must be passed with a grade of "C" or better. 

PSYCHOLOGY: HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT OPTION 

The Human Resource Development (HRD) Option is designed to provide a groundwork of 
skills and experience for students who wish to enter human service careers with a B.A. 
degree. With appropriate curriculum modifications, the program can also provide a sound 
background for students who wish to go into advanced degree programs in psychology, 
management, personnel, social work, counseling, guidance, education, and other areas. 
Students interested in graduate school should confer with their advisors in order to plan an 
appropriate course of study. 

The HRD Option focuses on enabling students to gain direct experience in the areas in 
which they would like to work. HRD students devote a semester to learning principles and 
skills related to working with human problems, and subsequently each HRD student 



166 



spends a semester working part-time or full-time in a job related to his/her own area of 
interest. The HRD Option accepts a maximum of 20 students each year. Interested students 
can apply for admissions to HRD during their sophomore or junior year. Further informa- 
tion and application forms are available in the Psychology Department office.

R. M. Turner, Assistant Dean for Student Services 

H. Winston, Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs 

Students who seek a challenging technical career in research and development, design, 
construction, production, maintenance, technical sales, management, teaching, or other 
careers requiring a methodical, creative solution of problems, should consider an engineer- 
ing or computer science education. At NCSU, the College of Engineering has a distin- 
guished and internationally recognized faculty. The faculty, together with the curricula of 
the undergraduate and graduate programs, offer an opportunity for ambitious students to 
become the leaders and prime movers of our increasingly technological world. Because of 
the great influence of science and technology on our everyday lives, today's engineer and 
computer scientist must be acutely aware of, and responsible for, the impact that his or her 
creations may have on society. In addition to safety, aesthetics, economics, and energy, 
today's technologist must consider environmental, sociological, and other "human concern" 
costs. 

The college's 29,000 graduates may be found in widely diversified careers throughout the 
world. Most are practicing in the engineering profession, but because their education has 
equipped them well to deal with problems in a wide variety of fields, many College of 
Engineering graduates have become corporate presidents, leaders in government, lawyers, 
and medical doctors, to name a few. 

The College of Engineering is organized into ten departments: Biological and Agricultu- 
ral, Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Computer, Industrial, Materials Science and Engineer- 
ing, Mechanical and Aerospace, Nuclear, and Textile Engineering and Science; and the 
Department of Computer Science. Sixteen undergraduate degree programs are offered in 
these ten departments. In addition, a degree program in Engineering is offered by special 
arrangement to the very few students who can clearly demonstrate the need for an individ- 
ualized program of study. All departments also offer advanced studies leading to profes- 
sional degrees, master's degrees and the Doctor of Philosophy degree. (See listing of 
graduate degrees offered.) 

The College of Engineering requests and receives accreditation from the Engineering 
Accreditation Commission of the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology 
(ABET) for twelve of its undergraduate engineering degree programs. The program in 
computer science is accredited by The Computer Science Accreditation Commission 
(CSAC) of the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board (CSAB). Accreditation insures 
that these programs satisfy requirements for acceptance by these nationally recognized 
agencies. All curricula and programs are designed to maintain the college's national and 
international reputation while meeting the needs of the people and industries of the state 
and region through effective instruction, competent research, and the development of new 
and meaningful contributions to scientific knowledge. 

A Career Planning and Placement Center is maintained by the University to assist 
continuing students and graduating students to achieve their career goals. 

UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULA AND DEGREES 

Entering students receive assistance in planning an appropriate program of study and 
have available continued guidance from academic advisors throughout their academic 
careers. Beginning freshmen are enrolled in the Engineering Undesignated program for 
one to two years. After successfully completing Engineering Undesignated requirements. 



171 



a student may be admitted to a specific department. In order to be eligible to apply for 
admission into a degree program, Engineering Undesignated students must successfully 
complete at least 28 credit hours, including the following courses: MA 141 and MA 241; PY 
205:ENG111:E 115: CH 101, and one of either CH 107 or CSC 110/112. 

Prerequisite requirement for all engineering courses— Before a student in the Col- 
lege of Engineering may enroll in a 200 or higher level engineering course, the student must 
have earned a grade of'C" or higher in ENG 111, MA141, MA 241, PY 205, and CH 101. and 
the student must have successfully completed E 115, and one of either CH 107, CSC 1 10, or 
CSC 112. 

Bachelor of Science— The baccalaureate program provides preparation for entry into 
industry, government, business or private practice as well as graduate school. Graduates 
with a BS degree in Engineering or Computer Science may be engaged in design develop- 
ment, production, construction, sales, maintenance, or the planning, operation or manage- 
ment of industrial units. 

The undergraduate curricula offer programs of study leading to bachelor's degrees in 
aerospace engineering, biological and agricultural engineering, chemical engineering, 
civil engineering, civil engineering construction option, construction management, compu- 
ter engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, engineering, environmental 
engineering, industrial engineering, industrial engineering furniture manufacturing 
option, materials science and engineering, mechanical engineering, nuclear engineering, 
and textile engineering. Graduation requirements include completion of one of the sixteen 
curricula with an overall grade point average of 2.0 and a grade point average of 2.0 in the 
major courses. The total number of required credits ranges from 120 to 135 semester hours. 

ENGINEERING SCHOLARS PROGRAM 

The Engineering Scholars Program has as its goal the promotion of research and 
academic careers in engineering and computer science. Under the sponsorship of the 
College of Engineering, in cooperation with the Division of Student Affairs, scholars begin 
by living together and participating in special educational seminars, cultural enrichment 
activities, and special scholars' sections in some courses. In the sophomore year. Engineer- 
ing Scholars may begin research apprenticeships with faculty members throughout the 
College of Engineering. Additional information may be obtained by contacting departmen- 
tal program representatives. 

DOUBLE DEGREE PROGRAMS 

NCSU students may wish to earn Bachelor of Science degrees in two fields of engineering 
or in computer science and an engineering field. When the two courses of study are planned 
early and carefully, a number of courses can simultaneously satisfy requirements in both 
degrees. Humanities, social science, physics, mathematics, chemistry, English and physi- 
cal education sequences are common to most curricula. In addition, required courses in one 
curriculum can sometimes be used as electives in another field. A well-planned double 
degree program can be completed in five years. Students interested in such a program 
should consult the Assistant Dean for Student Services. 

Other students may wish to combine a Bachelor of Science in Engineering or Computer 
Science with a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree in another college or school at 
NCSU. Here also, a number of courses required for one degree may satisfy requirements 
for a second degree. When the two courses of study are planned early and carefully, a 
double-degree program can be completed in as few as five years. Students interested in 
such a program should contact the Assistant Dean for Student Services. 

Benjamin Franklin Scholars Program 

A limited number of freshmen in the College of Engineering are selected to participate in 
the Benjamin Franklin Scholars program. In addition to their major courses, each Ben- 
jamin Franklin Scholar develops an individualized, five-year plan of work focused on a 
central theme in the humanities and social sciences. Students completing the program 



172 



receive a Bachelor of Science in an engineering discipline or computer science and a 
Bachelor's degree in multidisciplinary studies. 

This double-degree program provides a unique opportunity to integrate a solid base of 
knowledge in technology or science with a broad philosophical perspective of the humani- 
ties. The curriculum for the double-degree program has four main components: ( 1) a strong 
general education, (2) specially designed interdisciplinary and problem-defining courses, 
(3) all technical course requirements associated with the engineering or computer science 
degree, and (4) a thirty-hour multidisciplinary concentration designed by the student in 
consultation with his or her advisors. With careful planning, this program can be com- 
pleted in five years. 

For more information, contact the Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs in the College of 
Engineering (118 Page Hall), or the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Affairs in the 
College of Humanities and Social Sciences (106 Caldwell Hall). 

TRANSFER PROGRAM 

Students with non-engineering degrees or one or more years of academic work completed 
at other institutions may apply for transfer admission to the College of Engineering 
through the University Admissions Office. Students are admitted from appropriate pro- 
grams from four-year institutions, as well as junior and community colleges. 

Students currently attending or anticipating attendance at other institutions are advised 
to contact the Assistant Dean for Student Services for information regarding admission to

The College of Engineering offers post-baccalaureate curricula leading to the degrees of 
Chemical Engineer, Civil Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Industrial Engineer, Materials 
Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, and Nuclear Engineer. These programs of study are 
designed to fit the needs of students desiring intensive specialization in a particular field, or 
additional work not ordinarily covered in the normal undergraduate curricula. For further 
details, see "Professional Degrees." 

PURCHASE OF COMPUTERS BY COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING STUDENTS 

During their first semester, new freshmen in the College enroll in a computer literary 
course, E 115, which is taught using the EOS student computing facility. Following 
completion of E 115, it is expected that students will incorporate use of EOS workstations 
into all curricular areas, including the preparation of reports and papers in non-technical 
subjects. In either the freshman or sophomore year, most students will take a course in 
computer programming and thereafter, will increasingly use computers as an engineering 
tool. The College policy is that all of its students will be provided with the computing 
resources required to successfully complete their course of study. However, some students 
may find that owning a computer is beneficial in terms of convenience and ready access to 
computational capability. Since different departments within the College have different 
course and computer language requirements, the College recommends that new students 
who decide to purchase a personal computer should not do so until they have been admitted 
into a degree program. 

INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES 

The College is actively working to provide its students with opportunities for overseas 
work and study experience. In addition to the study abroad program which is available to 
all students at NCSU, College of Engineering students can participate in an exchange 
program with the University de Technology de Compiegne in Compiegne, France. Alterna- 
tively, through the College of Textiles, students interested in France can participate in an 
exchange program at the Catholic University of Lille, France. Students interested in Japan 
can participate in one of several programs offered by EAGLE, the Engineering Alliance 
for Global Education.

approved humanities and social science courses may be used for this purpose. Students 

should obtain a copy of the list from their Coordinator of Advising. 

COOPERATIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM 

This optional program is structured so that the student will alternate semesters of study 
with semesters of practical work as sophomores and juniors. The freshman and senior years 
are spent on campus, while sophomore and junior academic work is spread over a three- 
year period to permit alternating academic semesters with work-experience semesters. 
Students earn a salary while they are in industry, and they may earn a sufficient income to 
finance much of their college education. The co-op plan can be completed in five years, 
during which time the student receives 12 to 18 months of industrial experience. 

Students in all curricula in the College of Engineering may apply for the co-op program if 
they have a grade point average of 2.25 or better. After a student has been accepted for 
employment, he or she is expected to maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average. Applica- 
tion for admission into the co-op program should be made early in the spring semester of the 

174 



freshman year; however, later applications resulting in fewer work semesters prior to 
graduation will be considered during the sophomore year or the first semester of the junior 
year. Engineering Undesignated students must be admitted into an engineering degree 
program prior to beginning the first co-op assignment. Further information may be 
obtained from the Office of Cooperative Education, 212 Peele Hall. 

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

Each curriculum in the College of Engineering has a technical society open to every 
student enrolled in the curriculum. In most cases, these are student chapters of national 
professional organizations. Each curriculum also has one or more honor societies to give 
recognition to students who have earned superior academic records. In addition, there are 
college-wide honor, professional, and service societies that offer personally and education- 
ally rewarding opportunities for students. 

Student representatives of each curriculum serve on the Engineers' Council. The Council 
is the coordinating agency for college-wide activities such as the Engineering Fundamen- 
tals Examination review classes, the Engineers' Week Exhibition, the annual St. Patrick's 
Day Dance, and the A^. C. State Engineer student publication.

Biological and agricultural engineering "brings engineering to life". Students analyze 
and develop solutions to unique engineering problems of biological and agricultural sys- 
tems. An area of concentration can be chosen whereby scientific and engineering principles 
are applied to such diverse problem areas as: biomechanical systems for biomedical appli- 
cations; proper environmental management of soil and water resources; processing and 
marketing of food and fiber; and machines, controls, and structures for biological and 
agricultural systems. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Conceptualizing, designing, and developing systems for producing, processing and 
packaging a high quality food supply and maintaining a high quality environment will 
provide many opportunities for graduates of the biological and agricultural engineering 
curriculum. Jobs can be in design, development and research in public institutions and in 
industry. Examples are food engineers for food processing companies, biological engineers 
for biomedical engineering, design engineers for farm equipment companies, and envir- 
onmental engineers for government environmental agencies, industry or engineering con- 
sulting firms. This curriculum, accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission 
of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, also provides adequate train- 
ing for post-graduate work leading to advanced degrees in Biological and Agricultural 
Engineering.

CURRICULUM IN BIOLOGICAL AND AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING 

The curriculum provides an educational program for students which uniquely prepares 
them for dealing with engineering problems in the biological and agricultural areas. 
Flexibility in the program allows the student to choose electives which may lead to concen- 
trations in the areas of: (1) biological engineering, (2) environmental/soil and water engi- 
neering, (3) food engineering, (4) power and machinery engineering, or an emphasis area 
designed by the student and his/her advisor. Emphasis is placed on basic science and 
engineering courses such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, mechanics, biology, soils, 
and thermodynamics which provide a sound background for the application of engineering 
to agricultural and biological problems. 

The program is jointly administered by The College of Engineering and The College of 
Agriculture and Life Sciences in order to assure quality of basic training in both engineer- 
ing and the life sciences. Undergraduate freshmen entering this curriculum should enroll 
in the College of Engineering undesignated program and indicate BAU as their curricu- 
lum choice. After successfully completing the Engineering undesignated requirements the 
student will enter the Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department (BAE). Grad- 
uates receive a B.S. in Biological and Agricultural Engineering.

The sound management of material, environmental, and energy resources, taking into 
account natural and economic constraints, guides the performance of chemical engineering 
practice. Chemical engineering education integrates design and analysis, science and 
technology, with communication skills developed through exposure to the humanities and 
the social and economic sciences. Chemical engineering organizes these diverse skills into a 
coherent discipline uniquely suited to the needs of the chemical, biochemical, environmen- 
tal, petroleum, plastics, textile, and pulp and paper industries. 

FACILITIES 

Departmental teaching and research activities are based on the four floors comprising 
the east wing of the Riddick Engineering Laboratories. Equipment for studying the 
principles of fluid flow, heat transfer, distillation, absorption, drying, crystallization, and 
filtration is maintained in several laboratories. Chemical reaction kinetics including heter- 
ogeneous catalysis and polymerization are studied on specially designed equipment. 
Extensive apparatus is available for characterizing the relationships between molecular 
structure and bulk properties of polymers. A 2,000 square foot biotechnology laboratory 
has been equipped to include a pilot plant for studying biologically mediated chemical 
reactions. Specialized digital computational equipment complements campus-wide Uni- 
versity computer resources. The department makes constant use of its fully expanded 



177 



MicroVax-3600 comp iter system which is accessible for use 24 hours a day by students and 
faculty. 

OPPORTUNiTIES 

Competition for chemical engineering graduates at all degree levels is intense. Graduates 
readily find employment at extremely attractive salaries in diverse subdisciplines includ- 
ing research and development, production, management and administration; process con- 
trol, technical service, and sales; estimation and specification writing; consulting and 
teaching. Students desiring careers in teaching, research, or consulting are advised to 
consider graduate training (see listing of graduate degree offered). Chemical Engineering 
graduates often pursue careers in law or the medical sciences since the broadly structured 
undergraduate curriculum provides strong preparation for graduate study in a wide range 
of professional specialties. 

CURRICULUM IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING 

The successful practice of chemical engineering requires a broad, diversified prepara- 
tion. The spirit of research and experimental inquiry is vital; students, therefore, require 
sound scientific backgrounds essential to original and disciplined thought, enthusiastic 
inquiry and, ultimately, original and constructive accomplishment. The undergraduate 
curriculum emphasizes the scientific, engineering, and economic principles involved in the 
design and operation of chemical processes. The background in organic, physical, and 
inorganic chemistry is comparable to the training offered to chemistry majors. Mathemat- 
ics, physical sciences, and distributed humanities courses are also required. The Chemical 
Engineering program, which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission 
of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), leads to the degree 
Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering.

Civil Engineering is one of the broader engineering fields. It is concerned with the 
improvement and control of the environment and deals with the planning, design, construc- 
tion, operation, and maintenance of buildings, dams, bridges, harbors, power facilities, 
pollution control facilities, water supply, and transportation systems.The Department of 
Civil Engineering offers curricula that provide academic preparation for students consid- 
ering a career in civil, construction, or environmental engineering. The sound general 
education of the undergraduate program prepares the student for advanced study, either 
through graduate study or self-study. 

The Civil Engineering program, which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation 
Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), leads to 
the degree Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. The Civil Engineering-Construction 
option program, also accredited by ABET, leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Civil Engineering-Construction option. The new Environmental Engineering program 
will be presented for accreditation to ABET following graduation of the first class. The 
Construction Management program leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Construc- 
tion Management. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

People will always need constructed facilities to live, work, and sustain their lives and 
environment, and civil, construction, and environmental engineers will always be needed to 
plan, design, and construct these facilities. Civil, construction, and environmental engi- 
neering comprises such a diversified field that graduates have a wide choice in locations 
and types of employment. Jobs range from federal, state or municipal agencies to a variety 
of manufacturing and processing industries, consulting firms or construction companies. 
The work may be performed partially or wholly in an office or in the field and may be 
located in a small community, a large industry center or in a foreign country. Careers in 
teaching and research are common for many graduates who complete advanced degrees. 

FACILITIES 

Open access is available to a state-of-the-art computer laboratory providing support in 
analysis, design-synthesis, and word processing. Laboratories for testing structural mate- 
rials, large models or full-scale structures; for the investigation of soils and bituminous 



180 



products; for hydraulic experiments; for analysis of small structural models; for chemical 
and biological tests pertaining to environmental engineering; for construction process 
modeling, management, and automation; and for the investigation of transportation prob- 
lems all help students learn more about their field. 

CURRICULA 

Four undergraduate curricula are offered; one leads to a Bachelor of Science in Civil 
Engineering: the second, to a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering-Construction option; 
the third, to a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering; and the fourth, to a 
Bachelor of Science in Construction Management. 

The Civil Engineering curriculum is a balanced program providing academic discipline 
in mathematics, the physical sciences, the humanities and social sciences, and the technical 
aspects of civil engineering. After introductory exposure to several of the professional areas 
such as environmental and water resources, geotechnical, structural, and transportation 
engineering, the student builds additional depth in one of these specialties. 

The curriculum in the Civil Engineering-Construction option is designed for students 
interested in the construction phases of civil engineering. It includes the core course 
requirements in mathematics, the physical sciences, and the humanities and social sci- 
ences. After an introductory exposure to the fundamentals of civil engineering, the curricu- 
lum provides a series of specialty courses in construction engineering related to the analy- 
sis, design, and management of the construction process. 

The curriculum in Environmental Engineering is designed for students interested in 
working in the areas of waste treatment, pollution control, and environmental restoration 
after graduation. The curriculum includes introductory civil engineering courses in 
mechanics as well as courses in chemical engineering, the life sciences, and specialized 
courses focusing on environmental engineering. 

The Bachelor of Science in Construction Management is offered for students interested in 
entering the construction industry with somewhat more management background. Gradu- 
ates of this curriculum are exposed to broader construction management problems involv- 
ing business and finance along with the basics of engineering training. This curriculum 
features an off-campus internship program during two summers with a construction firm. 
The student selects a construction concentration in either general construction, mechanical 
construction or electrical construction. 

POST-BACCALAUREATE STUDY 

If a student is interested in more intense specialization in a particular area, advanced 
level training is available leading to the Professional Degree in Civil Engineering, the 
Master of Civil Engineering, the Master of Science or the Doctor of Philosophy. Specializa- 
tion areas include coastal and ocean engineering, construction engineering and manage- 
ment, construction materials, environmental and water resources engineering, geotechni- 
cal engineering, mechanics and structural engineering and transportation engineering. 
With judicial choice of electives, a student may also prepare for additional study in law, 
business administration, business management and city and regional planning. The Col- 
lege of Management offers a Master of Science in Management with several technical 
options including Civil Engineering-Construction.

The discipline of computer science has emerged during the past three decades as a result 
of the rapid growth of the use of computers. This unprecedented technical revolution has 
made computers a part of normal life. Almost all areas of business and industry, the 
military, government, and education use computers. New applications continue to occur. 
Computers are used to design, manufacture and operate our automobiles, airplanes and 
spaceships, to design our highways, bridges and buildings, to manage banking transac- 
tions, to help managers decide, to analyze farm production, to assist the research scientist; 
to monitor manufacturing processes, utilities and communication 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Computer scientists have a wide range of career choices because of the diversity of 
computer use. A graduate may be involved in the design, implementation, or management 
of computer systems. Some may work more with advancing computer capabilities while 
others may apply computers to new applications. Others may go on for advanced study. 
Some may wish to interact frequently with people, some may not. Computer science offers 
opportunities for all ambitions and preferences. 

CURRICULUM IN COMPUTER SCIENCE 

This undergraduate curriculum leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Computer 
Science. This program is accredited by the Computer Science Accreditation Commission of 
the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board. Core courses provide the fundamentals of 
programming concepts, operating systems, data structures, computer architecture, and 
the theory of computation. Restricted electives chosen in consultation with one's advisor 
during the junior year allow exploration of specific computer science subareas such as 
management information systems, database management systems, graphics, operating 
systems, and software engineering. A student in another department may select courses in 
computer science as electives to broaden his/her program of study and to learn how to use 
the computer for solving problems. Before a computer science major is eligible to enroll in 
any 200 or 300 level required course in computer science, the student must have a 2.4 or 
higher grade point average.

The professions of electrical engineering and computer engineering are concerned with 
the analysis, design, construction and testing of systems based on electrical phenomena. In 
contemporary technological society, electrical methods are used to communicate and store 
information, control equipment and systems, perform mathematical operations, and con- 
vert energy from one form to another. Frequently, two or more of these functions are 
important in the design of systems such as television, radio, telecommunications, compu- 
ters, robots and intelligent machines, telemetry systems, solid-state electronics, biomedical 
devices, electric machinery, and electric power generation and transmission facilities. 
Computer engineering is a field in which digital techniques are used in system design. 
Low-cost solid state microprocessors and memories permit computers to be widely incorpo- 
rated in many different types of electronic systems. To work effectively in this rapidly 
growing field, the computer engineer must understand both hardware and software tech- 
niques and must effectively use both techniques in order to design, build and test complex 
digital systems. Both the electrical engineering and the computer engineering programs, 
which lead respectively to the degrees. Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and 
Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, are accredited by the Engineering Accredi- 
tation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). 

SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS 

Superior academic performance is recognized within this department in three ways: 
election of students to membership in the electrical engineering honor society, Eta Kappa 
Nu; awarding of merit scholarships: and presentation of awards to outstanding seniors. The 
department has one endowed merit scholarship for entering freshmen, the Eugene C. and 
Winifred Sakshaug Scholarship, and eight endowed scholarships which are usually 
awarded to juniors and seniors: Elizabeth P. Cockrell, L. A. Mahler, Amelia N. Mitta, 
Frank T. Pankotay, William DeRosset Scott III. E. Chester Seewald, North Carolina 



187 



Electric Membership Corporation, and William D. Stevenson, Jr., the latter two of which 
are for students studying electric power systems. The department also from time to time 
has scholarships provided by industrial organizations such as the Alcoa Foundation, 
General Motors Corporation and United Technologies Research Center. Academic merit is 
generally the primary requirement for these awards, but other characteristics, such as 
demonstrated leadership, may also be specified. In addition, the endowed William M. Cates 
Scholarship Program provides multiple scholarships for students having documented 
financial need and high academic performance. These are awarded each fall to juniors, 
with provision for continuation in the senior year. 

FACILITIES 

Many courses are accompanied by coordinated laboratory work and projects. These 
assignments typically focus on real-world systems and problems and involve computer 
simulation and analysis, design, development and testing of hardware and software asso- 
ciated with electrical, electronic, and electromechanical systems, circuits and devices. 
Extensive facilities are provided for experimental study of analog and digital circuits, 
microprocessors, computers, electrical machinery, VLSI devices, robots and intelligent 
machines, telecommunications, and microwave systems. The EOS System, a network of 
state-of-the-art engineering workstations, provides a powerful computing environment 
available to all students. Two EOS laboratories with more than sixty workstations, mostly 
color, are located within the department. Electrical and Computer Engineering provides 
knowledgeable attendants in these laboratories up to eighteen hours a day. A student may 
log in at over 500 workstations located in these two laboratories and several other facilities 
throughout the College of Engineering. Powerful software is provided on the system for 
engineering analysis, design and testing, symbolic mathematics, sophisticated color gra- 
phics, scientific spreadsheets, programming languages, word processing, document for- 
matting and other special applications. The department has an Undergraduate Design 
Center which provides resources for required industry-sponsored, semester-long design 
projects. Weekly sessions are scheduled in the Undergraduate Teaching Center by teaching 
assistants to answer student questions about course material. Both centers are equipped 
with EOS workstations. 

CORE COURSES 

The Electrical and Computer Engineering curricula share core courses comprising a 
substantial portion of the first three years of study. Strong emphasis is placed on funda- 
mental concepts in core courses so that graduates are prepared for rapid technological 
changes common in the electrical and computer engineering professions. A comprehensive 
foundation in mathematics and the physical sciences in the freshman year is followed in 
subsequent years by additional core courses in mathematics, physics, electric circuit the- 
ory, digital logic, computer systems, electronics, linear systems, and mechanics. Labora- 
tory work is designed to demonstrate fundamental principles and to provide experience in 
designing and testing electronic hardware and computer software. Both curricula have 
required senior design courses which give students comprehensive experience in design- 
ing, building and testing physical systems. 

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING CURRICULUM 

In addition to the core courses described above, students in the Electrical Engineering 
curriculum take courses in electromagnetic fields, solid-state devices, and electric power 
systems in their junior year and thermodynamics in their senior year. Students may take 
two courses of their choice in the senior year from more than 20 elective courses offered in 
communications, control systems, digital systems, electric power systems, electromagnet- 
ics, microelectronics, and robotics.

INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING CURRICULUM 

The industrial engineer designs, improves, and installs integrated systems of people, 
materials, equipment, and information, drawing upon specialized knowledge and skill in 
the mathematical, physical and social sciences, together with the principles and methods of 
engineering analysis and design to specify, predict and evaluate the results to be obtained 
from these systems. Productivity and effective utilization of resources, including energy 
conservation, are principle concerns of practitioners. The industrial engineer may develop 
operations or improvements for many diverse activities, such as a hospital, a department 
store, a manufacturing enterprise, an insurance office or government function. His or her 
position in an organization is usually as a management advisor in contact with every phase 
of the organization. 

The curriculum blends a basic group of common engineering technical courses with 
specialized courses in the major areas of industrial engineering — design of human and 
machine systems, design of management control systems, and improvement of manufac- 
turing operations. The course offerings stress mathematical and statistical techniques of 
industrial systems analysis; quantitative methodologies of operations research; computers 
as a tool for problem solving and simulation; economic considerations of alternatives; 
control of product or service quality and quantity; specifications of the manufacturing 
process including the equipment and tooling; and the utilization of safety and human 
factors engineering principles. The Industrial Engineering Program, which is accredited 
by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering 
and Technology (ABET), leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Industrial 
Engineering.

OPPORTUNITIES 

The continuing industrial and technological growth of the United States and the South- 
east in general and of the state of North Carolina in particular has been marked by a 
particularly strong demand for materials scientists and engineers. The pace of modern 
technological advances requires new materials and novel processing and/or fabrication 
methods. At the national level, materials research is prominently mentioned in most lists of 
critical or enabling technologies. As our understanding of materials science advances, 
common features and elements tend to unite many different industries. As an example, 
consider that our current knowledge of silicon is necessary in the electronics, photovoltaics, 
optical fiber technologies, lasers, pollution control, and biomedical industries. Advanced 
understanding of polymers also crosses and unites several different industries ranging 
from plastics, textiles, electronics, and recycling. 

Professional preparation and education in materials science and engineering provides 
career opportunities in a wide range of industries from those which produce and/or use 
metals, glass, polymers, or ceramics, to those which use such materials in an integrated 
fashion such as the microelectronics industry. These opportunities include careers in 
research and development of new materials, new processes for producing them, failure 
analysis, product design and reliability, and technical management at all levels of business. 

CURRICULUM IN MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING 

The materials scientist and engineer must be able to deal with a wide range of phenomena 
that occur in all classes of materials; metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, and electronic 
materials. The undergraduate curriculum is designed to provide balance by addressing the 
scientific and engineering principles applicable to all classes of materials as well as the 
particular engineering and design concepts unique to each class of material. Further 
emphasis in a specific area is provided by choosing one technical elective dealing with 
processing (metallic or ceramic materials) and one technical elective dealing with specific 
applications (composite materials or electronic materials). The basic science elective allows 
students to gain more fundamental knowledge in either solid state theory, organic, or 
physical chemistry. The required senior design courses (MAT 423-424) serve as capstone 
courses and provide a strong preparation for dealing with real industrial situations; the 
first course covers open-ended classroom exposures and participatory involvements in 
group dynamics and proposal preparation; the second course provides direct involvement 
with an industrial sponsor working on real problems submitted by industry. The remaining 
required courses are distributed among mathematics, physical sciences, and the humani- 
ties and social sciences. 

The materials science and engineering program, which is accredited by the Engineering 
Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology 
(ABET), leads to the degree Bachelor of Science in Materials Science and Engineering. A 
fifth year professional program is available for advanced study and further specialization. 
Graduate degrees are also offered (see listing of graduate degrees offered and consult the 
Graduate Catalog).

Mechanical engineering deals with practical applications of mechanics and thermal 
sciences and comprises a wide range of activities including research; design and develop- 
ment; testing and experimentation; production implementation; manufacturing; opera- 
tions; engineering sales and service; and management of engineering systems, subsystems 
and components. The diverse areas to which mechanical engineers contribute include 
transportation, power generation, energy conversion, environmental control, pollution 
abatement, manufacturing, and noise control. A recent trend in one phase of mechanical 
engineering has been increased interest in the areas of robotics, precision engineering, and 
automated manufacturing systems. 

Aerospace engineering has grown out of the challenge of the design, construction, and 
operation of vehicles that move or travel above the earth's surface. These vehicles range 
from ground-effect machines and helicopters to aircraft, rockets, and spacecraft. The 
design of these vehicles is difficult not only because they must be lightweight but also 
because they must operate reliably and efficiently in a harsh environment. Every major 
class of thermal and mechanical system is included in aerospace vehicles. Moreover, the 
design requirements for spacecraft and high performance transport aircraft also apply to 
the next generation of ground transportation systems such as high speed trains, over-water 
transport, and automated motor vehicles. 

FACILITIES 

Laboratories include research facilities in acoustics, automotive engine pollution and 
performance, computer-aided-design and computer graphics, the effect of shock loading on 
materials, machine tool wear and mechanics, applied energy systems including a complete 
solar house, precision engineering, and boundary layers on airfoils. Undergraduate labora- 
tories exist for the following courses and activities: mechanical engineering measurements, 
performance evaluation of mechanical engineering systems, senior projects in machine and 
system design, senior projects in aerospace vehicle design, and subsonic and supersonic 
wind tunnel testing and data analysis. Further, the department has a complete machine 
shop and electronics and instrumentation shop and related technicians.

OPPORTUNITIES 

The flexibility and breadth of the mechanical engineering curriculum culminates in a 
broad range of employment opportunities in machinery and power related applications the 
world over. Mechanical engineers work at the heart of development of computer controlled 
devices, vehicles and production machinery. They are well qualified for employment in 
production or product planning and for industrial management. Many go into research and 
development after graduate study. The employment demand for graduates in mechanical 
engineering typically exceeds the supply and is among the highest of the various engineer- 
ing departments. 

Most graduates in aerospace engineering prefer to seek employment in the the aerospace 
industry, however, they are broadly qualified for a variety of kinds of practice. The 
aerospace industry is one of the largest employers of engineers in the United States. Career 
and employment opportunities are available in the areas of aerodynamics, propulsion, 
structures and stability and control in both commercial and private aviation and in related 
aerospace industries. 

CURRICULA 

Because of the close relationship between mechanical and aerospace engineering, both 
curricula are administered by one department. There is cooperation between the two 
disciplines in which responsibility for subject areas such as thermodynamics, heat and 
mass transfer, vibrations, acoustics, fluid mechanics, propulsion and control theory is 
shared. Each program is designed to provide the student with an understanding of both the 
science on which the discipline is founded and the applied science and technology which 
characterizes its specific character. In addition the programs provide the student with an 
opportunity to develop the skills for applying his or her acquired knowledge. The Aerospace 
Engineering and the Mechanical Engineering programs, which are accredited by the 
Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and 
Technology (ABET), lead to the degrees Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering, 
and Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, respectively. Graduate degrees are 
also offered (see listing of graduate degrees offered and consult the Graduate Catalog).

Nuclear engineering is concerned with the engineering aspects of the control, release and 
utilization of nuclear energy from both fission and fusion. Nuclear reactors serve many 
functions — they serve as heat sources for electric pwwer plants, are the basis of modern 
propulsion systems for ships and submarines, and produce fissionable and radioactive 
isotopes for a variety of peaceful applications. Nuclear methods are applied in medical 
diagnosis and treatment, scientific research, and the search for new resources. The Nuclear 
Engineering program educates individuals in scientific and engineering principles essen- 
tial for effective and productive contributions in industrial, university and government 
service. The Nuclear Engineering program, which is accredited by the Engineering 
Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology 
(ABET), leads to the degree Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Nuclear power reactor construction continues with over one hundred reactors now 
operating in the nation, increasing our reliance upon nuclear energy as a substitute for 
energy from fossil fuels. Development of breeder and fusion reactors offers the potential of 
vast new energy sources. Industrial and medical applications of radiation continue to 
increase in diverse industries. A demand for nuclear engineers exists within the electric 
power industry and national laboratories. 

SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS 

Several special scholarships exist for NCSU Nuclear Engineering students, including 
the Bechtel, Carolina Power and Light, Ebasco, Eastern Carolinas ANS, Institute for 
Nuclear Power Operations, and American Nuclear Society scholarships. A special 
department fund supports scholarships for incoming freshmen. NCSU Nuclear Engineer- 
ing students have gained national recognition by several times receiving the Student 
Design Award of the American Nuclear Society and being recipients of nationally awarded 
fellowships. 

FACILITIES 

Facilities for nuclear education include: a nuclear research reactor (PULSTAR), which 
can be operated at a steady state power of 1 MW; the Scaled Pressurized Water Reactor 
facility (SPWR), an operating 1/9 scale model of a nuclear power plant; radiation detectors 
and multi-channel analyzers; nuclear materials laboratory; thermal hydraulic laboratory; 
prompt gamma facility; neutron radiography unit; numerous computer facilities including 
graphic terminals, access to the NCSU IBM 3090 supercomputer and the North Carolina 
Supercomputing Center CRAY Y-MP, an Alliant FX/4 parallel mini-supercomputer, 
numerous departmental computer workstations, several College of Engineering EOS 
engineering workstations, and microcomputers (PCs); fusion laboratory; neutron activa- 
tion analysis laboratory, and high- and low-level radiochemistry laboratories.

CURRICULUM 

Nuclear engineers work in nuclear systems research, design, development, testing, 
operation, environmental protection, and marketing. The Bachelor of Science program 
prepares graduates for positions in industry, national laboratories, or for graduate study 
(see listing of graduate degrees offered). The curriculum incorporates basic sciences and 
engineering, with emphasis on mathematics and physics, followed by coursework in 
nuclear science and technology. Attention is given to the engineering design of nuclear 
reactors and nuclear radiation systems and to energy resources and environmental aspects 
of nuclear energy. Computers are widely used through the curriculum.

Professor C. D. Livengood, Head of the Department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry, and 
Science 

Professor B. S. Gupta, Assistant Head 

Professor K. R. Beck, Assistant Head 

Professor T. G. Clapp, Program Director 

(For a list of faculty, see "Textile Engineering, Chemistry, and Science") 

The textile and related industries represent a major part of the manufacturing segment 
of the American economy with the industry mainly concentrated in the Southeast. The 
textile industry of North Carolina comprises approximately one-fourth of the United States 
textile industry. Textile and related industries in North Carolina represent 40-50% of the 
industrial employment. The value of textile products alone produced in North Carolina 
totals some $13 billion a year. 

The textile industry is rapidly changing to become a capital intensive, high-technology 
industry. Applications of computers and robotics are commonplace in the modern plant. 
Textile engineering is concerned with the application of scientific principles and engineer- 
ing practice to the design and control of all aspects of fiber, textile and apparel processes, 
products and machinery. 

The Textile Engineering program, which is accredited by the Engineering Accredita- 
tion Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), 
leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Textile Engineering. 

FACILITIES AND SCHOLARSHIPS 

(See "College of Textiles") 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Because the modern production and utilization of textile materials require young people 
highly competent in the areas of engineering, mathematics, science and technology, gradu- 
ates of the program are prepared for challenging careers in the primary textile, man-made 
fiber, apparel and nonwovens industries, as well as the textile machinery, automotive, 
aerospace and construction industries. Opportunities abound in plant engineering, quality 
engineering, production control, process engineering, and product development. 

TEXTILE ENGINEERING CURRICULUM 

The Textile Engineering program investigates how scientific principles and engineering 
practices can be applied to the diverse requirements of textile materials, processes, struc- 
tures and machinery. The program combines study of textile, physical, mathematical and 
social sciences with engineering analysis and design techniques. Students study the inter- 
action of fibers and fabrics with machinery, as well as consider such issues as quality, 
safety, process control and project management. Completion of a B.S. in Textile Engineer- 
ing provides the individual with a broad engineering background suited to addressing 
textile engineering problems. Since training in textile engineering involves two distinct 
technical fields— textiles and engineering — the curriculum is a joint responsibility of the 
two colleges and is so administered.

The College of Engineering offers professional curricula leading to the degrees of 
Chemical Engineer, Civil Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Industrial Engineer, Materials 
Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, and Nuclear Engineer. This program is designed for 
engineering students holding baccalaureate degrees who find that an additional year of 
education is desirable, for practicing engineers who desire to take a year of professional 
work to update their training, and for students holding physical sciences or mathematics 
degrees who seek a professional level of education in engineering. The program is intended 
to be sufficiently flexible to meet a wide variety of student needs, and to emphasize 
professional course work. The curriculum consists of a minimum of 30 hours of credit at the 
400 level or above, including at least 15 hours of credit at the 500 level or above. 

Applicants who hold the bachelor's degree in engineering, physical sciences, or mathe- 
matics may be admitted to the professional program of the College of Engineering upon 
application and presentation of official credentials. For unconditional admission, these 
credentials must show a minimum grade point average of 2.5 overall. Admission on a 
provisional basis may be granted to applicants who do not meet the formal requirements. In 
the case of insufficient preparation, prerequisite courses will be prescribed in addition to 
the normal fifth-year requirements. 



202 



The following requirements of the College of Engineering will be observed: 

1. Professional degree students are admitted through the Undergraduate Admissions 
Office as fifth-year professional degree (PR) students. They are subject to rules and 
regulations as established and administered by the Dean of the College of Engi- 
neering. 

2. Application forms for admission to the professional degree program should be 
completed and submitted to the Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs at least 60 days 
in advance of the semester in which admission is sought. Acceptance of a student for 
the professional program is based on the recommendation of the student's depart- 
ment and the approval of the Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs. At the time of 
acceptance, NCSU students may transfer a limited number of excess credits to their 
professional program. 

3. A limited amount of credit to be applied toward the requirements for the profes- 
sional degree may be transferred to NCSU from recognized institutions offering 
advanced work in engineering and related fields. Such a transfer of credit must be 
approved by the department in which the student does his or her major work and by 
the Dean of the College of Engineering. 

4. A graduate in one field of engineering may choose to work for a professional degree 
in another field provided he or she has the permission of the department. The student 
will be expected to take necessary prerequisite courses in addition to those required 
for the professional degree program. 

5. Each fifth-year student will be assigned to an advisor in the sponsoring department. 
The function of the advisor is to assist the student in preparing a program of study 
and to counsel the student with regard to his or her academic work. Prior to the 
midterm of the first semester, the student and his or her advisor should agree on a 
program of study for the professional degree. Program of Study for Professional 
Degree forms will be prepared and submitted to the office of the Assistant Dean for 
Academic Affairs as well as to the department. Upon approval of the Office of the 
Dean, this becomes the student's degree program. 

6. Grades for each completed course are reported to the Dean of the College of Engi- 
neering and to Registration and Records. A minimum grade of "C" must be made in 
each course to obtain credit. A quality point average of 2.5 in all course work must be 
maintained to satisfy requirements for a professional degree. 

7. All courses taken by the student after admission to the professional program will 
count toward the overall grade point average even though an individual course may 
not be a part of the degree program. 

8. A student who falls below 2.5 average will be placed on probation and given one 
semester to raise the overall average up to a 2.5. If the student has been admitted on a 
provisional basis, he or she must make a 2.5 average the first semester in order to 
continue. 

9. Work completed more than six years prior to the date on which the professional 
degree is to be granted may not be used as credit toward the professional degree, 
unless approved by the head of the department concerned and the Assistant Dean for 
Academic Affairs. 

10. A professional degree student who has been admitted to the Graduate School may, 
with the approval of a Master's Degree committee and the Graduate School, transfer 
nine hours of credit for courses in which a grade of "B" or higher was received. 

11. A student may transfer only once, that is, from the Professional Degree Program to 
the Graduate School or from the Graduate School to the Professional Degree Pro- 
gram. Therefore, a student is not permitted to return to either program after having 
transferred from that degree program. 

12. It is intended that professional degree students will complete a substantial portion of 
credit hours toward the degree while in residence on the NCSU campus.

COLLEGE OF FOREST 
RESOURCES 



Biltmore Hall (Room 2028) 

L. W. Tombaugh, Dean 

J. D. Wellman, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Coordinator of Advising 

R. Lea, Associate Dean for Research 

K. Martin, Assistant to the Dean for Academic Affairs and Lecturer 

A. S. Coughlin. Director of Educational Outreach 

C. D. Argentati, Natural Resources Librarian 

The mission of the College of Forest Resources is to develop high-impact professionals, 
new ideas, and technology to assure that natural resource-based enterprises are managed 
in ways that are economically sound and environmentally sustainable. This mission is 
pursued through programs of undergraduate and graduate instruction, research, and 
extension. 

The College of Forest Resources is the only unit in the University of North Carolina 
System that combines accredited programs in forestry, wood and paper science, and 
recreation and park management. It thus has a unique responsibility to provide the leader- 
ship, the science, and the technology that will contribute to improved management of 
renewable natural resources, more productive and competitive resource based enterprises, 
and an improved quality of the environment. 

Renewable natural resources serve three broad purposes, and these purposes define the 
programs of the College of Forest Resources. 

First, forests and related natural resources provide goods and services that are useful to 
society and that provide the basis for industrial activities, jobs, and income. The College has 
a special mission to provide well educated personnel, new technology, and service to the 
forest products industry— an industry that adds $73,000,000,000 to the value of the U.S. 
economy each year and that employs nearly 9% of all people working in U.S. manufactur- 
ing. This industry is particularly important to the economy of our state. It ranks second in 
terms of manufacturing employment in North Carolina, and its products include pulp and 
paper, lumber, plywood, particleboard, and furniture. An important part of our mission is 
to contribute to the efficiency and profitability of forest products enterprises while assuring 
the continued availability of raw materials and productive forests in the long run. 

The second use of renewable natural resources-forests, wildlife, open spaces — is for 
leisure time activities. Whether enjoyed in urban settings or in national parks and forests, 
leisure time experiences are essential to the overall quality of life in an increasingly 
technological society. The College prepares professionals to deal with planning, organizing, 
and managing parks, recreation and sports programs, and commercial recreation and 
tourism facilities. 

Finally, natural resources interact in complex ways to produce a finely woven, delicate 
web of ecological relationships. It is not just the quality of life, it is in some instances life 
itself that will depend on our capability to understand and maintain a harmonious relation- 
ship with the natural environment. All departments within the College conduct teaching, 
research, and extension activities directed to understanding and contributing to the main- 
tenance of a high quality environment. 



204 



DEGREE PROGRAMS 

The College of Forest Resources offers programs of study leading to baccalaureate and 
graduate degrees in the management and use of natural resources and offers courses in the 
same arena to students in other colleges. Five professional curricula are administered in 
the College through its Departments of Forestry; Parks, Recreation and Tourism Man- 
agement; and Wood and Paper Science, and a sixth is offered through joint administration 
of the Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences Program with the College of Agriculture and Life 
Sciences. These programs provide a broad education in the biological, physical, and social 
sciences as well as a sound cultural and professional background. 

Baccalaureate degrees prepare students for careers in the fields of fisheries and wildlife 
sciences; forest management; natural resources assessment and management; parks, 
recreation and tourism management; pulp and paper science and technology; and wood 
products. 

Graduate degrees offered include: Master of Science, Master of Forestry, Master of 
Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management. Master of Wood and Paper Science, and the 
Doctor of Philosophy. Graduate degree programs may be tailored to a variety of specialized 
and interdisciplinary topics related to the teaching and research activities of the College. 
Applicants should consult the Graduate Catalog for additional information about these 
programs. 

COMPUTER COMPETENCY 

Extensive use of microcomputers and workstations is incorporated throughout all cur- 
ricula of the College of Forest Resources. Each program begins with a basic course in 
computer competency in the freshman year, and students are expected to use the computer 
for increasingly complex class assignments and for the preparation of papers and reports. 
Computing resources are available for student use in the College and elsewhere on campus, 
but many students find it advantageous in terms of convenience to purchase a personal 
computer. The College has arranged for personal computer lease or purchase through the 
NCSU Bookstores. Questions about such a purchase should be directed to the Associate 
Dean of Academic Affairs or the appropriate departmental curriculum coordinator. 

FIELD INSTRUCTION AND WORK EXPERIENCE 

All curricula in the College have strong components of hands-on field and laboratory 
instruction and experience, and all either require or strongly recommend voluntary on-the- 
job work experience. All students (except those in Natural Resources concentrations) are 
required to complete the equivalent of one or more of the following summer activities; (1) 
camp; (2) internship; (3) practicum; (4) work experience. The Forest Management and 
Fisheries and Wildlife curricula both have required summer camps. Undergraduates 
enrolled in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management complete a nine-week internship 
immediately following the completion of the junior year. All Pulp and Paper majors spend 
at least one summer working in an industrial setting designated by the College. Wood 
Products students attend a summer practicum following the sophomore year. Students in 
all curricula may also participate in summer jobs and the cooperative education program to 
gain work experience. 

Local field trips are a regular part of many courses. Additional field instruction and 
scheduled trips to representative industries and agencies are frequently required as a part 
of regular class assignments. 

HONORS AND SCHOLARS PROGRAMS 

The College of Forest Resources participates in the University Scholars Program in 
which exceptional new students (freshman or transfer) are selected for special courses and 
activities that provide an expanded educational experience. 

The purpose of the College of Forest Resources' Honors Program is to offer the opportun- 
ity for advanced students with outstanding records to enhance the depth of study in their 
major field. Students with an overall GPA of at least 3.25 after 40 or more credit hours will 



205 



be invited tx) enter the Honors Program. Honors students develop more rigorous programs 
of study, frequently taking advanced courses in mathematics, science, or social science or 
graduate courses in the chosen curriculum. With the adviser's consent honors students may 
substitute preferred courses for normally required courses in order to develop strength in 
special interest areas. Honors students are required to undertake a program of independent 
study which can involve a research problem or special project during their junior or senior 
year, and they must participate in the senior honors seminar. 

Two honor societies in the College of Forest Resources promote and recognize academic 
excellence: Xi Sigma Pi (for all majors within the college) and Rho Phi Lambda (for 
recreation majors). Advanced undergraduate and graduate students with high academic 
achievement are invited to become members of these societies. High achieving forest 
management and natural resources students are also eligible for recognition by two agri- 
culture honor societies, Alpha Zeta and Gamma Sigma Delta. All students are also eligible 
for recognition by the campus-wide honor societies. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

The College of Forest Resources administers a large program of academic scholarships 
that is separate from the University Merit Awards Program. Academic scholarships 
(ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 per year) and renewable annually are awarded in several 
program areas to entering freshmen and transfer students. The appropriate departments 
accept applications, and based on academic excellence, and leadership, award the scholar- 
ships that are administered through the North Carolina Forestry Foundation and the Pulp 
and Paper Foundation. The awards include a total of over 100 scholarships for students in 
the Forest Management, Natural Resources, Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management, 
Pulp and Paper Science and Technology; and Wood Products and Technology curricula. 

INTERNATIONAL ACTIVITIES 

Students in the College of Forest Resources are exposed to the international dimensions of 
their programs in a variety of ways. Many faculty members regularly travel abroad and 
several are active in major projects in foreign countries, including an international coopera- 
tive research project concentrating on Central America and Mexico and a faculty exchange 
program with Sweden. With that faculty experience, the international aspects of many 
topics are covered in core courses, and several elective undergraduate and graduate courses 
focus specifically on the international dimensions of natural resource management. In 
addition, many international students enroll in the College, with as many as 21 different 
countries represented in recent years. 

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

Each department in the College has a student curriculum club and/or student chapter of 
the appropriate national professional organization. All of these organizations provide 
opportunities for professional development, for interaction with faculty and other students, 
and for participation in local, regional, and national student and professional activities. 
Student representatives from each organization and curriculum serve on the College of 
Forest Resources Council. The Council provides overall coordination for student activities,

The undergraduate program of the Department of Forestry prepares students for pro- 
fessional challenges, personal growth, and a lifetime of service as managers of renewable 
natural resources. The curricula endeavor to produce well educated forestry and natural 
resources graduates who have the basic knowledge, skills, flexibility, and attitude needed 
for successful professional performance in a wide variety of career opportunities. Gradu- 
ates will be prepared to face the challenges of competing uses of natural resources and the 
environment, and the pressures for increasing production of goods and services from 



207 



natural ecosystems while maintaining their quality for future generations. The Depart- 
ment of Forestry strives to enroll and graduate a high quality, culturally and racially 
diverse student body to enhance the diversity and richness of forestry and natural resources 
professionals. Its academic curricula are enriched by out-of-class contacts among students, 
faculty, and practicing professionals, which promote a sense of professionalism and profes- 
sional community. Gaining practical experience is encouraged through participation in 
summer employment and the cooperative education program. 

The department has three Bachelor of Science (BS) degree programs: Forest Manage- 
ment, Natural Resources Ecosystem Assessment, and Natural Resources Policy and 
Administration. The Forest Management curriculum provides the broad-based forestry 
education needed for direct employment into positions in a wide variety of forestry or 
forestry-related organizations. The Natural Resources curricula provide more general- 
ized, interdisciplinary programs in natural resources management that focus on the areas 
indicated in the curriculum titles. 

Instruction and practice in communications skills (both writing and speaking) are inte- 
grated into the required forestry (FOR) courses throughout the Forest Management cur- 
riculum and to a lesser extent in the forestry (FOR) and natural resources (NR) courses of 
the Natural Resources curricula that are taught in this department. The communications- 
across-the curriculum program produces graduates who are highly competent and confi- 
dent in the communication skills needed by successful natural resource managers. 

The use of computers is integrated into the curricula in a similar fashion. Introductory 
instruction in the use of microcomputers is provided in CFR 134 and practical assignments 
on the use of computers as a tool in natural resource management are integrated into the 
advanced courses of all three curricula. 

Information on department programs may be obtained by contacting Ms. Kris Martin, 
College of Forest Resources Recruiting Coordinator, NCSU, Box 8001, Raleigh, NC 27695- 
8001, (919) 515-5510 or Dr. James D. Gregory, Assistant Head for Undergraduate Pro- 
grams, Department of Forestry, NCSU, Box 8002, Raleigh, NC 27695-8002, (919) 515-7567. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

The Department of Forestry annually awards four types of scholarships that are avail- 
able to freshmen, transfers, and advanced students: Academic, Forestry Summer Camp, 
Industrial and Work-Study. About 30 Academic Scholarships of $1500 each are awarded 
annually in April for the following academic year and are renewable provided that superior 
progress is made toward a degree. Five endowments provide these awards: John M. and 
Sally Blalock Beard, Edwin F. Conger, Hofmann Forest, James L Goodwin, and Jonathan 
Wainhouse Memorial. 

Four scholarships are available each year to students attending Forestry Summer Camp. 
Two scholarships are awarded in April to students attending the next camp and two are 
awarded after camp to the students who exhibited superior academic and professional 
skills while at camp. Two endowments provide these awards: Ralph C. Bryant and 
Maki-Gemmer-Johnson. 

Three Industrial Scholarships are available each year. In addition to cash awards, the 
Industrial Scholarships provide practical work experience with industrial forestry organi- 
zations. Industrial Scholarships are supported by grants from Canal Wood Corporation, 
Chesapeake Corporation, and the North Carolina Forestry Association. 

About 12 Work-Study Scholarships are awarded each year, generally to juniors and 
seniors. Work-Study Scholarships, currently at $1500 each, carry a work requirement 
which is usually satisfied by assisting with operational activities on the college forests. This 
requirement means that recipients must be advanced students with some field skills. Three 
endowments provide these awards: Biltmore Forest, James L. Goodwin, and George K. 
Slocum. 

Scholarship applications or questions should be directed to Dr. Richard Braham, For- 
estry Scholarship Coordinator, (919) 515-7568. 



208 



COOPERATIVE EDUCATION AND SUMMER WORK EXPERIENCE 

Practical work experience is an important component of the professional degree pro- 
grams in the Department of Forestry. That experience may be gained through participa- 
tion in the Cooperative Education Program or through summer work experience. The 
department has close ties with a number of employers in the field of forestry and natural 
resources and provides placement assistance for the work experience programs. The 
Cooperative Education Program, which requires a minimum 2.25 GPA after at least one 
year of study for participation (many employers require a higher minimum), involves 
alternating semesters or summer periods on the job with semesters on campus for classes. A 
total of 12 months of work experience is required. Students who successfully complete the 
"coop" program are in high demand by employers. Interested students should contact the 
department placement officer, Mr. Larry Jervis, (919) 515-7576. 

DUAL DEGREE PROGRAMS 

Students in Forestry or Natural Resources who have a strong interest in another degree 
topic may obtain a second baccalaureate degree in addition to the primary one. Such dual 
degree programs may be designed to provide a broader base in a related technical field such 
as Wood Science and Technology, Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences, or Soil Science or to 
broaden the student's knowledge and skills in a supporting field such as Business, Eco- 
nomics, Sociology, or Political Science. Joint programs require coordination of the courses 
required in both curricula and the additional time required to complete them depends on 
the similarity between the curricula and the use of electives in one to satisfy required 
courses in the other. One to several extra semesters may be required to complete two 
degrees but expanded employment opportunities are a definite benefit. 

TRANSFER STUDENTS 

The Department of Forestry accepts NCSU students in good academic standing and 
students from other accredited colleges and universities with good academic records 
(minimum 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale is preferred) as transfers into its curricula. Students at 
community colleges, junior colleges, or other baccalaureate institutions who plan to 
transfer to one of the department's degree programs should closely follow the desired 
curriculum by taking the equivalent courses available. Only equivalent courses will be 
credited to the appropriate degree program after enrolling at NCSU, and the time required 
to complete the degree will depend on the courses remaining in the degree track. Students 
applying for the Forest Management curriculum who have upwards of 45 credits equiva- 
lent to those in the freshman and sophomore years must transfer here at least one semester 
prior to entering summer camp. Questions about transfer procedures or courses should be 
directed to Dr. James D. Gregory, Assistant Department Head for Undergraduate Pro- 
grams, (919) 515-7567. 

CURRICULUM IN FOREST MANAGEMENT 

The curriculum in Forest Management is a professional program accredited by the 
Society of American Foresters that has long been ranked as one of the best among the 45 
such programs in the country. With a rigorous math and science base, the curriculum 
produces graduates with a broad education in the natural sciences, humanities and social 
sciences, communications skills, computer competency, and the technical knowledge and 
skills needed for sound management of the multiple resources of natural and managed 
forest ecosystems. Preparatory courses in the freshman and sophomore years are followed 
by the 10-week forestry summer camp where the woods knowledge and field skills that are 
essential for all foresters are acquired. Core courses of the junior and senior years focus on 
forest ecosystem processes, applied economics, operational practices in forest stand man- 
agement, measurement and analysis of forest stand components, policy issues in natural 
resource management and the management decision-making tools and skills needed to 
develop and implement forest management plans. 



209 



OPPORTUNITIES 

Graduates in Forest Management are in demand by state and federal land-managing 
agencies, by industrial concerns growing wood as raw material, by state forestry and 
agriculture extension services, by forestry related organizations such as nurseries and 
landscape management firms, and by urban natural resource management agencies. Some 
graduates, after acquiring professional forestry experience, are self-employed as consul- 
tants and as operators or owners of forestry related businesses. Several recent graduates 
have become high school teachers, some have joined the Peace Corps, some are working in 
forestry related sales and marketing and in financial management and others have joined 
environmental consulting firms. Many, of course, go on to graduate school to specialize in a 
wide variety of forestry and related programs. 

FORESTRY SUMMER CAMP 

An intensive full-time 10-week long summer camp experience, with forestry field train- 
ing in the Coastal Plain, Piedmont, and Mountain regions of North Carolina is required in 
the Forest Management curriculum. The camp is based at the College's Hill Demonstration 
Forest with trips taken to other regions. Students take the summer camp after completion 
of the sophomore year and earn 10 semester credits for courses that provide a base of 
knowledge and skills for the advanced courses to come.

CURRICULA IN NATURAL RESOURCES 

The two natural resources curricula offered by the Department of Forestry are compo- 
nents of the campus-wide baccalaureate degree program in Natural Resources. The cur- 
ricula are designed to produce natural resources professionals with a broad interdiscipli- 
nary background coupled with a specific focus in natural resources management. The 
Natural Resources curricula are rigorous math and science based programs with a com- 
mon core of m.ath, science, communications, and humanities and social science courses that 
provide a broad general education. Students in all Natural Resources curricula will begin 
the program in a common introductory course, NR 100, and complete the program in a 
common senior course, NR 400, that focuses on the tools and skills of natural resource 
management problem solving and decision making. Those common courses will highlight 
the integrated nature of a broad field and provide experience in the important professional 
practice of working together in interdisciplinary teams. 

The curriculum in Natural Resources Ecosystem Assessment will produce graduates 
who have the knowledge and skills needed to inventory and describe the characteristics of 
natural ecosystems and evaluate the impacts of management practices. Ecosystem assess- 
ment or environmental impact assessment is an extremely important and somewhat spe- 
cialized arena in the environmental field that requires individuals who understand eco- 
system structure and processes; who can identify, measure, inventory, and describe 
ecosystems; and who can apply standard evaluation and classification systems such as 
wildlife habitat evaluation procedures and the federal wetland delineation criteria. To the 
strong science base of the core is added a concentration that provides advanced courses in 
sampling and measurement and in vegetation, soils, hydrology, and wildlife and fisheries. 
Many of the 400 level courses also address techniques and issues of natural resource 
management. 

The curriculum in Natural Resources Policy and Administration will produce gradu- 
ates who have the knowledge and skills to manage natural resources programs in a variety 
of settings and organizations with an emphasis on public agencies. The advanced courses of 
the curriculum provide a broad background in economics, policy, government, public 
administration, and natural resources management. An economics track begins with 
introductory microeconomics and culminates with environmental economics and public 
finance. Courses in the various levels of government and public administration provide 
in-depth knowledge of how public institutions work. Courses in forestry, wildlife and 
fisheries, and outdoor recreation provide background on issues and techniques of managing 
natural ecosystems for various uses. A common thread of how public policy on natural 
resources is influenced and developed runs through many of the courses already noted and 
culminates in two senior courses that focus on policy. 

211 



OPPORTUNITIES 

Graduates with the kind of knowledge and expertise provided by the Natural Resources 
Ecosystem Assessment curriculum are needed in a variety of public agencies and private 
organizations that are involved in environmental regulation and management. Examples 
are the wetlands protection programs of the US Environmental Protection Agency and the 
US Army Corps of Engineers and the various environmental regulatory programs of state 
and local governments. Private environmental consulting firms need entry level profes- 
sionals with broad skills in the field of environmental assessment. The broad natural 
resources background provided by this curriculum also provides a strong base for students 
who wish to go on to graduate school or environmental law or build additional specialties 
focused on specific job opportunities or career tracks. 

The curriculum in Natural Resources Policy and Administration is designed to produce 
administrators and managers for public agencies and private organizations that are 
involved with management, administration, policy-making, preservation, or regulation of 
natural resources. Examples are the USDI National Park Service, the US Environmental 
Protection Agency, the US Geological Survey, state and local government agencies and 
not-for-profit environmental organizations. The broad background in government, eco- 
nomics, policy, and natural resource management also provides a strong base for students 
who wish to pursue a graduate program in the natural resources economics and policy

The department offers an interdisciplinary program combining elements of natural 
resource management with a concern for human services. Standards adopted by the 
recreation profession make college graduation a requirement for employment. North 
Carolina State University has facilities, staff, curriculum, program and an established 
reputation for comprehensive professional education in the study of parks, recreation and 
tourism management. The program is nationally accredited. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

As increased discretionary time becomes available for large segments of the American 
population, opportunities for growth in the leisure service professions have increased 
dramatically. A recreation and park professional's goal is to influence people to use their 
discretionary time wisely and to improve the quality of their lives. This goal is accom- 
plished by providing recreation programs and facilities for people in a variety of settings. 

Career opportunities include employment by park and recreation departments operated 
by county and municipal governments: employment by state agencies such as state parks, 
forests, and planning and advisory groups; and the federal government with agencies such 
as the National Park Service, Corps of Engineers, U. S. Forest Service, and military 
establishments. 

Other major employers include youth and family service organizations such as the 
YMCA, YWCA, Boys' Clubs, and Boy and Girl Scouts. Industries employ recreation 
directors to head employee recreation programs. Recreation professionals are employed by 
schools as community school coordinators. Areas with perhaps the greatest growth poten- 
tial for employment are tourism agencies and commercial recreation establishments such 
as resorts, private clubs, theme parks, and convention and conference centers.

CURRICULUM IN PARKS, RECREATION AND TOURISM MANAGEMENT 

The curriculum in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management offers a broad general 
education background, basic professional and technical courses, and the opportunity to 
specialize in a particular field. General education courses are in biology, psychology, 
sociology, political science, English, mathematics, physical sciences, and economics. Spe- 
cialized courses are required in statistics and the use of computers. 

The curriculum is designed to prepare students for a variety of positions in a young, 
dynamic and challenging profession. The focus of the curriculum is on management rather 
than face-to-face leadership. The curriculum provides 44 hours of professional course work 
that includes recreation philosophy, management techniques and skills, fiscal manage- 
ment, supervision, facility and site planning, programming, administration, and analysis 
and evaluation. A computer laboratory is utilized in many courses to provide the student 
with the best current technology available. 

In addition to the general education requirements and the core professional require- 
ments, students can begin to attain specialized training through 18 hours of concentration 
courses. At the beginning of the students' junior year they choose one of the following 
concentrations: Tourism and Commercial Recreation, Park Management, Natural Re- 
source Management, or Program Management (including special emphasis in sports or 
arts management). 

Academic studies on campus are supplemented by practical laboratory experiences in 
the Raleigh area, out-of-state field trips and study opportunities, and a ten-week internship 
with a park, recreation or tourism agency. Cooperative work-study programs are available.

The wood-based industry of North Carolina, as well as throughout the South, is a vital 
part of the nation's economy. In terms of the dollar value of shipments of wood products, the 
South leads all regions of the country. North Carolina manufactures more wood household 
furniture than any other state, ranks third in shipment value for all wood-based products 
and second in number of employees and wages paid. Thus, many opportunities exist in 
North Carolina and other southern states for careers in the wood-based industry. 

The Department of Wood and Paper Science offers two curricula leading to Bachelor of 
Science degrees-(l) Pulp and Paper Science and Technology, and (2) Wood Products. Both 

216 



curricula prepare young men and women for careers in the wood-based and allied indus- 
tries or in government agencies connected with wood resources. 

PULP AND PAPER SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY 

A. G. Kirkman, In Charge 

The Pulp and Paper Science and Technology curriculum prepares students for careers in 
pulp and paper, an industry that ranks as the fifth largest manufacturing industry in the 
United States. Science, engineering, and mathematics form the basis for a multidiscipli- 
nary approach to understanding the fundamental manufacturing principles involved. 
Students study wood pulping processes, chemical and by-product recovery systems, and 
pulp bleaching. In addition, various paper-making operations such as refining, sizing, 
coating, and drying are studied. 

Two concentrations are available emphasizing the technological or engineering aspects 
of pulping and papermaking. The Technology Concentration provides an extensive back- 
ground in the pulp and paper manufacturing processes and elective credit hours for studies 
in marketing, economics, management or other concentrations of interest to the student. 
Greater depth in the engineering principles underlying pulp and paper manufacturing can 
be obtained from the Chemical Engineering Concentration. Students who have completed 
the Chemical Engineering Concentration in pulp and paper science and technology can, in 
cooperation with the College of Engineering and with an additional semester of study, earn 
a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering as a second degree. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Graduates of this curriculum find opportunities for challenging careers as process 
engineers, product development engineers, process control chemists, technical service 
engineers, quality control supervisors, and production supervisors. Design and construc- 
tion engineering companies employ graduates as project engineers, and pulp and paper 
machinery companies use their education and skills for technical service and sales posi- 
tions. Opportunities for managerial and executive positions are available to graduates as 
they gain experience. 

SUMMER INTERNSHIP 

All pulp and paper majors are required to work one summer in a pulp or paper mill. One 
hour of academic credit is granted after completion of 12 weeks of mill work and presenta- 
tion of a satisfactory report. In addition, students are urged to work in mills the other two 
summers, as the work provides valuable practical experience. Departmental advisors 
assist students in locating summer work. 

REGIONAL PROGRAM 

The pulp and paper curriculum is a regional program approved by the Southern 
Regional Education Board as the undergraduate program to serve the Southeast in this 
field. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

Approximately 85 undergraduate academic scholarships are granted annually to new 
and continuing students by more than 100 companies comprising the Pulp and Paper 
Foundation.

WOOD PRODUCTS 

Professor M. W. Kelly, In Charge 

The wood products industry is of major importance to the economy of North Carolina and 
the Southeast. It ranks third in the state in the value of shipments, behind only textiles and 
tobacco products, and it is second to textiles in the number of employees. The managerial 
opportunities for graduates with a B.S. in Wood Products are excellent. Graduates of this 
program have a broad education in the humanities, communication skills, social and 
natural sciences, as well as the professional training required for managerial positions in 
the wood products industry. The curriculum, similar to a material science program, is 
based on the natural resource wood with an emphasis on industrial manufacturing and 
management. Graduates' knowledge of wood as a raw material enable them to properly 
design and process a variety of wood-based products of value to society. As the availability 
of nonrenewable resources decreases and their costs increase, the demand for wood, a 
renewable resource, increases. Currently, career opportunities are excellent and continued 
demand for individuals with a wood products education is anticipated. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

The Wood Products curriculum at North Carolina State University, which is accredited 
by the Society of Wood Science and Technology, prepares graduates for production super- 
vision, staff positions and management responsibilities in all types and sizes of wood 
industries. Careers also include positions with both large and small companies manufactur- 
ing consumer wood products such as furniture. Graduates are also in demand by suppliers 
to wood manufacturing industries such as chemical and machinery companies. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

Approximately six undergraduate merit scholarships are granted annually to new and 
continuing students through the Forestry Foundation. 

TECHNICAL ELECTIVES 

The curriculum provides a minimum of 15 credit hours for technical electives which may 
be used to pursue a minor in a variety of areas including business management, industrial 
engineering, forestry management or economics. For those undergraduates desiring expo- 
sure to more than one area, the technical electives may be chosen from these areas and from 
others, e.g., furniture manufacturing and management and graphic communication. 

DUAL DEGREE PROGRAMS 

Dual degree programs are available whereby students can obtain, in addition to a 
Bachelor of Science in wood products, a second Bachelor of Science degree in forestry, pulp 
and paper science, business management or in other areas. Credits beyond those required 

220 



for the single degree program are necessary and a minimum of an additional year of study 
is usually required. Individuals interested in a dual degree should contact the appropriate 
departmental office.

MINOR IN INTERNATIONAL STUDIES 

An International Studies minor is offered to all students in the University who want to 
add a significant international dimension to their departmental majors. This minor pro- 
gram enables students to explore international topics, issues and research from cross- 
cultural, transnational perspectives. The program will provide some tools that students can 
use to understand better the global context of the modern world and to learn the inter- 
national dimensions of their chosen fields of study. 

MINOR IN ARTS STUDIES 

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences offers an academic minor in Arts Studies 
to all majors in the university. This interdisciplinary minor is designed to enrich the 
student's university experience, to serve as a foundation for learning and understanding in 
the arts beyond the university years, and to stimulate intellectual development in ways that 
may reinforce or complement the objectives of the student's major. This minor provides the 
student with a fundamental understanding of the historical, theoretical, and practical 
disciplines of the arts. A total of eighteen credit hours must be taken to complete this minor. 
Students interested in the minor should refer to the Arts Studies courses listed under "Arts 
Studies" in the course description section of this catalog. These courses are described in 
detail under their departmental prefixes. 

HONORS PROGRAMS 

In conjunction with the Division of Student Affairs, the College of Humanities and Social 
Sciences sponsors the Scholars of the College Program for students who show exceptional 
academic promise. The participants in this residential program take special sections of 
freshman and sophomore level courses and participate in a series of cultural events and 
weekly forums. In their junior year they participate each semester in a special Junior 
Scholars Seminar and attend monthly forums. For upper-level students, each degree- 
granting department in the college offers an honors program designed to encourage 
outstanding students to develop their intellectual potential to the fullest extent possible 
through individualized study, special seminars, and close association with faculty members 
in their major field. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

In addition to the University-wide awards available, the following scholarships are 
offered to entering freshmen: 

J. Carlie Adams, Sr. Endowed Scholarship ($500) 

Claire Simmons Allan-Sampson Memorial Scholarship in Moral Philosophy ($1000) 

Bess B. and Lynton Yates Ballentine Scholarship ($1000) 

Frances W. and Gerald 0. T. Erdahl Memorial Scholarship ($1000)

PRE-LAW PROGRAM 

Law schools neither prescribe nor recommend a particular undergraduate curriculum 
for prospective candidates. The Association of American Law Schools has, however, 
recommended an undergraduate education of the broadest possible scope as the best means 
of developing the communicative, critical, and creative skills and abilities fundamental to 
success in legal studies and practice. A student may prepare for post-graduate work in law 
in any of the majors offered by the eight degree-granting departments in the College of 

226 



Humanities and Social Sciences. Alternatively, the student may elect the Concentration in 
Philosophy of Law (Department of Philosophy and Religion) or the Concentration in Law 
and Political Philosophy (Department of Political Science and Public Administration) or 
may apply for admission to the Multidisciplinary Studies program during the sophomore 
year and. in consultation with an adviser, design a pre-law major involving two or more 
academic areas. 

All interested entering freshmen are invited to attend a special orientation session for 
pre-law students. These students are also invited to join the Pre-law Student Association, an 
undergraduate organization that provides pre-law students with information concerning 
preparation for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) as well as the study and practice of 
law through guest speakers, discussion sessions, and other activities. Consult Prof. Baumer, 
(919) 515-6950, or Prof. Levenbook, (919) 515-3214, for more information. 

COOPERATIVE EDUCATION 

Cooperative Education in humanities and social sciences seeks to broaden the student's 
intellectual horizons and at the same time to provide an introduction to the world of 
business, industry, government, or finance in preparation for a career after graduation. In 
this program the freshman and senior years are usually spent on campus while the sopho- 
more and junior years are devoted either to alternate periods of on-campus study and 
off-campus work or to a parallel arrangement of part-time work and part-time study on a 
continuous basis. The student is paid for work experiences by the employer. Ordinarily the 
program takes five years to complete, but those who are willing to attend summer school or 
take on a summer co-op assignment can finish in four years. Transfer students are eligible, 
and all interested students are urged to apply early in the academic year. The program is 
also open to graduate students although less time is required on work assignment. 

Further information may by obtained from T. N. Wall, Coordinator of Cooperative 
Education. 213 Peele Hall. (919) 515-2300. 

JEFFERSON SCHOLARS IN AGRICULTURE AND THE HUMANITIES 

The Thomas Jefferson Scholars Program in Agriculture/Life Sciences and the Humani- 
ties is a joint program of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of 
Humanities and Social Sciences. It is a double degree which permits participants to have 
two concentrations: one in an area of agriculture/life sciences and one in an area of 
humanities/social sciences. The double degree program may be individually designed to 
meet each student's particular interests and career goals. The purpose of the program is to 
produce potential leaders in agriculture and the life sciences who have not only technical 
expertise but also an appreciation for the social, political, and cultural issues that affect 
decision-making. 

Each spring a number of entering freshmen are chosen to receive scholarships to partici- 
pate in the Jefferson program. In addition, other qualified students may choose to pursue a 
double major in agriculture/life sciences and the humanities under the Jefferson program. 
Students interested in applying to the Jefferson Scholars program should contact: Dr. 
James Oblinger, Associate Dean, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Box 7642, North 
Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695, (919) 515-2615 or Dr. Mary L. Walek, 
Assistant Dean, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Box 8101, North Carolina State 
University, Raleigh, NC 27695, (919) 515-2467. before January 15. 

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SCHOLARS PROGRAM 

A limited number of freshmen in the College of Engineering are selected to participate in 
the Benjamin Franklin Scholars program. In addition to their major courses, each 
Benjamin Franklin Scholar develops an individualized, five-year plan of work focused on a 
central theme in the humanities and social sciences. Students completing the program 
receive a bachelor of science in an engineering discipline or computer science and a 
bachelor's degree in multidisciplinary studies. 

This double-degree program, a joint undertaking of the College of Engineering and the 
College of Humanities and Social Sciences, provides a unique opportunity to integrate a 

227 



solid base of knowledge in technology or science with the broad philosophical perspective of 
the humanities. The curriculum for the double-degree program has four main components: 
(1) a strong general education, (2) specially designed interdisciplinary and problem- 
defining courses. (3) all technical course requirements associated with the engineering or 
computer science degree, and (4) a 30-hour multidisciplinary concentration designed by the 
student in consultation with his or her advisers. With careful planning, this program can be 
completed in five years. 

For more information, contact the Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs, College of 
Engineering (118 Page Hall) or the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Affairs, College of 
Humanities and Social Sciences (106 Caldwell Hall). 

ELI WHITNEY DOUBLE DEGREE PROGRAM IN TEXTILES AND 
INTERNATIONAL STUDIES 

This joint program between the College of Textiles and the College of Humanities and 
Social Sciences allows a student to earn a B.S. in Textile and Apparel Management and a 
B.A. in Multidisciplinary Studies with a concentration in international studies. This dual 
degree is designed to prepare students for work in the increasingly international textile 
industry. The program includes all the technical course requirements associated with the 
textile and apparel management degree. For the B.A. in Multidisciplinary Studies, stu- 
dents choose from among three areas of concentration: the Pacific Rim (language study in 
Japanese or Chinese), Latin America (language study in Spanish), or Europe (language 
study in German or Italian). The program, which takes four to five years to complete, also 
includes possible overseas internships. 

Merit scholarship awards are available for high-achieving students who participate in 
the double degree program in textiles and international studies. For more information, 
contact Dr. Gordon Berkstresser, Textile Management and Technology (3404 Textile 
Building) (919) 515-6593 or the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Affairs, College of 
Humanities and Social Sciences (106 Caldwell Hall) (919) 515-2467.

The Bachelor of Arts in Communication program provides study and training in human 
communication for professionals entering business, industry, social welfare organizations 
or government service. Today, many organizations are seeking graduates with demon- 
strated competencies in human communication to fill positions which require constant and 
skillful contact with a wide variety of internal and external publics. Depending upon their 



228 



area of specialization, graduates may find employment opportunities as communication 
consultants, media specialists, trainers, public relations specialists, therapists, or per- 
formers. Many graduates choose to enter graduate or law schools. 

PROGRAM OF STUDY 

The Communication major calls for successful completion of at least 36 semester credit 
hours of communication (COM) courses. Three of these courses, COM 110, COM 112, and 
COM 190, totaling nine semester credit hours, are completed by all students majoring in 
communication. The remaining credit hours in the major come from courses completed in 
one or more of the following concentrations offered by the Department of Communication: 

Communication: A generalist approach to the study of communication, this concentra- 
tion allows students a high degree of flexibility in course choice. Many of the elective 
courses in this concentration are related to the study of rhetoric and public address. 

Communication Disorders: The undergraduate portion of preparation for speech- 
language therapist or audiologist careers. A master's degree is required for entry into these 
professions. 

Mass Communication: A broad curriculum in the structure, operation, and social 
effects of the mass media in the United States with emphasis on electronic media, including 
courses in broadcast and non-broadcast media writing and production, media criticism, 
and media history. 

Public Relations: Instruction in the communication theories and methods applied by 
organizations to establish and maintain mutually beneficial relationships with employees, 
governments, stockholders, and other publics. 

Theatre: Studies in stage directing, acting, scenic and lighting design, and stagecraft. 
African-American dramaturgy and children's touring theatre are special features of this 
program. Courses are taught at Thompson Theatre on the NCSU campus. 

CURRICULUM NOTES 

• Students must enroll in COM 190 during their first semester as a communication 
major. 

• Transferring to communication from another NCSU major requires a minimum GPA 
of 2.0 with at least 15 credit hours completed. Such transfers are not permitted during the 
first week of classes or during the registration advising period each semester. 

• No final grades below C are permitted for courses used in the communication major. 

• To qualify for graduation, each student must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 for all 
courses completed at NCSU, and at least a 2.0 GPA for all courses taken in the communica- 
tion major. 

• COM 146, Business and Professional Communication, is intended for students in 
majors other than communication. Students majoring in communication may not use this 
course to satisfy any requirement within the 36-credit-hour major. 

MINORS 

A minor in Theatre is offered. Also, the Communication Department and the Department 
of English and the Division of Multidisciplinary Studies jointly offer a Film Studies minor. 
Literature detailing the requirements for these minors is available at the main department 
office. Those interested in the Journalism minor at NCSU should contact the English 
Department. 

INTERNSHIPS

The Department of English offers basic and advanced courses in writing, language, and 
literature. The freshman courses, taken by all undergraduate students, develop skill in 
expository writing and in analytical reading of literary and non-literary works. Advanced 
courses in communication of technical information, composition and rhetoric, and creative 
writing give students opportunities to pursue special personal and career interests, as do 
courses in literature, linguistics, film, and folklore. 

The department offers a Bachelor of Arts major in English with three options: literature 
and language, writing and editing, and teacher certification. It also offers a Bachelor of 
Science major. 

Also available to undergraduates are a minor in English, a minor in Comparative 
Literature (offered jointly with the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures), a 
minor in Linguistics (offered jointly with the Department of Languages and Literatures), a 
minor in Film Studies (offered jointly with the Department of Communication and the 
Division of Multidisciplinary Studies), and a minor in Journalism (offered jointly with the 
Department of Communication). An internship program combines work experience with

An understanding of the historical background of our times is expected of the educated 
person. The Department of History makes it possible for students to gain this understand- 
ing through a wide range and variety of courses at all levels from introductory through 
graduate. 

A broad offering of introductory courses is available to satisfy the undergraduate history 
requirement or part of the humanities and social sciences requirements in most university 
curricula. Students in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences are required to take 
two courses in history-one dealing with a culture significantly different from our own in 
pre-industrial Western or non-Western societies and the other dealing with our own culture 
in the United States or post-industrial Western societies. 

Honors students are eligible for membership in Phi Alpha Theta, the national history 
honorary society. Some introductory and advanced courses and most graduate courses are 
offered in the evening. 

The department offers two Master of Arts degrees. Students interested in enhancing 
their understanding of history, obtaining advanced teaching credentials, or pursuing 
doctoral work elsewhere may take the traditional graduate program. Students interested 
in applied history may take the public history program. Some financial assistance is 
available. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

A history major has traditionally served as a foundation for careers in such professions as 
teaching and law. In recent years undergraduates have frequently augmented studies in 
history with computer science, foreign language, or business administration, combinations 
which have proved attractive in business and government service. The prospect of new 
career ladders in public education has prompted renewed interest in a M.A. in history with 
advanced teaching certification. Multiplication of records of every kind has created a 
steady demand for historians with master's degrees in applied or public history. 

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN HISTORY 

Major in History— A history major must take 30 hours of course work in history in 
addition to the six hours required of all students in the College of Humanities and Social 
Sciences. These 30 hours must include a 491 seminar. At least 24 of the 30 hours must be at 
the 400 level. Sufficient courses are offered to complete the history requirements for the 
B.A. in the evening. 

Major in History with Social Studies Teacher Education Option— History majors 
may enroll in the teacher education program offered by the College of Humanities and 
Social Sciences in cooperation with the College of Education and Psychology. Students who 

234 



cornplete this program are eligible for certification to teach social studies in secondary 
schools in North Carolina. In addition to the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements, stu- 
dents are required to take professional courses in education and psychology and additional 
social sciences courses (132 credit hours required for graduation). Students desiring to 
enter this program should declare their intention during their sophomore year. Admission 
is competitive and the criteria include an overall grade point average of 2.75 or better. 
Enrollments may be limited in Teacher Education Option Programs. 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN HISTORY 

A concentration in history involves 18 hours of course work beyond the six hours required 
of all students in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences plus a senior seminar. Of the 
18 hours, at least 12 must be at the 400 level. 

MINOR IN HISTORY 

A minor in History shall consist of six courses in history; one introductory course in 
pre-industrial or non-Western history (i.e., HI 207, 208, 209, 215, 216, 263, 264, 275, or 276); 
one introductory course in United States or post-industrial Western history (i.e., HI 205, 
210, 221, 222, 233, 251, or 252); four three-hour courses in history at the 300 level or above, 
two of which must be on the 400 level. All six courses must be completed with a grade of C or 
better to satisfy the requirements of the minor.

Multidisciplinary Studies is an academic unit responsible for interdisciplinary pro- 
grams dealing with contemporary and historical issues and problems. Courses are taught 
by teams of faculty drawn from the division and from the academic disciplines relating to 
the problems or issues under consideration. These courses are open to students in all 
curricula. In addition, the Social Work Program is administered as part of the Division of 
Multidisciplinary Studies.

The Multidisciplinary Studies program allows a student to design his or her own aca- 
demic major. Instead of following the requirements for a major in one of the traditional 
disciplines, the candidate for the Bachelor of Arts degree in Multidisciplinary Studies has 
the responsibility of organizing a concentration or field specialization from one or more 
disciplines. A concentration in Latin American Studies might, for example, combine 
related courses in language, literature, history, economics, sociology, and political science. 

Two concentrations have been established primarily for the benefit of evening students. 
These are 1) American Studies: Cultural, Social, and Political and 2) Business Organization 
and Communication. All courses required for completion of these concentrations will be 
available in the evening. 

The freshman and sophomore basic requirements for the Multidisciplinary Studies 
program are the same as for the other Bachelor of Arts programs in Humanities and Social 
Sciences. In satisfying basic requirements in language, humanities, social science, mathe- 
matics, and natural science, the student should, whenever possible, choose those courses 
that are most appropriate as background for the courses in his or her major concentration. 

ADMISSION TO THE PROGRAM 

To become a candidate for a major in Multidisciplinary Studies, a student first secures 
application forms and information from the office of the Division of Multidisciplinary 
Studies (145 Harrelson), then prepares a tentative proposal which includes a list of courses 
comprising 30 credit hours and an essay of 300 to 500 words explaining his or her reasons 
for desiring to make this set of courses the field of specialization. The student's proposal is 
reviewed by a faculty sponsor and submitted to the Multidisciplinary Studies Degree 
Committee for consideration. After a thorough examination to determine whether the set of 
courses proposed as a multidisciplinary major is academically sound and coherent, the 
committee will recommend that the Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences accept the 
proposal; or it will be sent back to the student and his or her sponsor with suggestions for 
modification and resubmission. 

MINOR IN AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES 

The African-American Studies Minor provides a comparative and interdisciplinary 
study of the Black experience in Africa and the Americas. Three required courses include 
an Introduction to African-American Studies (MDS 240), Black American Literature 
(ENG 248), and Afro-American History (HI 372 or 373). Two elective courses may be 
selected from a list of designated courses in such disciplines as anthropology, history, 
language, sociology, social work, and communication. The minor is designed to bring 
together students from diverse backgrounds and curricula who share a common interest in 
the African-American experience. 

MINOR IN ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE 

This minor provides an opportunity for non-science majors to acquire basic understand- 
ing of the interrelationships between humans and the environment. It includes natural and 
social science courses that help to integrate disciplines and provide the foundation for 
analyzing environmental issues. 

MINOR IN FILM STUDIES 

(See Department of English) 



236 



MINOR IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AND SOCIETY 

The Science, Technology, and Society minor is a fifteen hour, multidisciplinary minor 
providing students an opportunity to appreciate and understand better the roles that 
science and technology play in the larger sociocultural context. A goal of the minor is to help 
students develop the ability to order and integrate the diverse aspects of their educations. 
Two essential components of this ability are sensitivity to the moral dimensions of scientific 
and technological inquiry as affecting how people may live or want to live and an apprecia- 
tion of the practical implications of scientific and technical theory. In addition, the Science, 
Technology, and Society minor enables students to increase the breadth of their familiarity 
with science and technology. 

MINOR IN WOMEN'S STUDIES 

The Women's Studies minor offers all students in the university the opportunity to study 
the role of women in society. The minor will enable students to develop a better understand- 
ing of how women's positions in various societies have arisen and evolved.

The Department of Philosophy and Religion at North Carolina State University renders 
two major services to its students. (1) In the discipline of philosophy, it offers an array of 
courses which examine the great philosophic ideas of Western civilization, and in the 
discipline of religion, it offers courses which examine the religious concepts and principles 
that have had an impact on all of civilization. (2) It provides an opportunity for extensive 
technical study in philosophy for students who wish to concentrate in this field either for its 
own sake or as an ideal intellectual foundation for subsequent graduate or professional 
study. 

HONORS PROGRAMS IN PHILOSOPHY 

The Department of Philosophy and Religion offers an Honors Program to provide an 
opportunity for qualified students to pursue a more challenging and individualized course 
of study. 

Students who qualify may elect to take as little as one course on an honors basis. However, 
those students who desire to enroll in the honors program and to have their transcripts 
include the words, "With Honors in Philosophy," are required (1) to complete a major in 
philosophy, and (2) to complete satisfactorily a minimum of fifteen hours (including Philo- 
sophy 335) of honors work. Students pursuing these goals will be referred to as "students 
seeking honors in philosophy." 



237 



HONORS PROGRAM IN RELIGIOUS STUDIES 

The Department of Philosophy and Religion offers an Honors Program in Religious 
Studies to provide an opportunity for qualified students to pursue a more challenging, 
individualized, and directed course of study than that afforded by the general Area of 
Concentration in Religious Studies. 

Students who qualify may elect to take as little as one course on an honors basis. However, 
those students who desire to enroll in the honors program and to have their transcripts 
include the words, "With Honors in Religious Studies" are required to (1) complete the 
degree program for Philosophy with an Area of Concentration in Religious Studies, and (2) 
to complete a minimum of twelve credit hours of honors work in Religious Studies. Students 
pursuing these goals will be referred to as "students seeking honors in religious studies." 

SCHOLARSHIP 

The Claire Simmons Allan-Samson Memorial Scholarship in Moral Philosophy, a 
renewable scholarship of $1000 per year, will be awarded annually to worthy students who 
have expressed an interest in issues in animal rights. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

For students interested in postgraduate study, information compiled by post-college 
professional schools reveals that undergraduate philosophy majors who apply to graduate 
schools of management have in the past scored extremely well in combined total scores on 
the Graduate Management Admission Test, with exceptional scores on verbal fields. Those 
undergraduate philosophy majors who apply to law schools have been shown to be more 
likely to be admitted than virtually any other field represented, and medical schools have 
also shown a significant preference for philosophy majors in their admissions. Students 
intending to study philosophy in graduate programs have consistently scored much higher 
than other students on the verbal section of the Graduate Record Examination. Because of 
this capability of scoring so well on the various postgraduate tests, many businesses and 
industries welcome philosophy majors into their training programs. 

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN PHILOSOPHY 

Candidates for the Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy must complete 30 hours in 
philosophy, including either Logic (PHI 201) or Symbolic Logic (PHI 335); the courses in

Major in Philosophy with a Concentration in Philosophy of Law — The program is 
designed to help students develop the ability to think critically about the role of the law and 
the values that it reflects. Because of its interdisciplinary nature, it provides a strong 
foundation for professional legal education. The concentration requires a minimum of 30 
hours in philosophy (including the course taken to meet school requirements) and a min- 
imum of 9 hours in political science. Three advised electives are required in addition to five 
core courses: PHI 309, PHI 312, PHI 313, PS 308 and PS 361. Four background courses,

OPPORTUNITIES 

There are a number of careers and professions for which a major in political science, or 
extensive study of government and politics, can be most useful. This is true especially for 
those planning to seek careers in teaching, the legal profession, criminal justice agencies, 
state and local government, urban planning, the federal bureaucracy, journalism or in any 
of the organizations that seek to monitor political processes or to influence the content of 
public policy. Private firms also seek managers and public affairs specialists who have a 
knowledge of the functioning of the political system and of politics in general. 

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN POLITICAL SCIENCE 

Major requirements are: 30 hours (in addition to any political science course which may 
be taken to satisfy the 12-hour social science requirement), 21 of which must be at the 
300-level or above; PS 201 or equivalent; at least six hours in each of three pairs of subf ields 
(Pair A: American Politics/Policy and Administration; Pair B: International or Compara- 
tive Politics; Pair C: Political Theory/Scope and Methods); and a Political Science Seminar.

Criminal Justice Option— The Departments of Political Science and Public Adminis- 
tration and Sociology and Anthropology offer undergraduate majors an option in Criminal 
Justice. This option includes 28 semester hours of specialized study. The program develops 
students who may move into middle management and policymaking positions in agencies 
such as police, court correctional, probation and parole agencies. 

Students interested in criminal justice should contact Dr. Robert Moog, 229 Caldwell 
Hall, Political Science and Public Administration or Dr. Matthew Zingraff, 312 1911 
Building, Sociology and Anthropology. 

Law and Political Philosophy Concentration— The concentration in Law and Political 
Philosophy is an interdisciplinary program designed for students who are interested in the 
theoretical and legal dimensions of political life. It seeks to develop a broad understanding 
of the relationship between law and politics and the moral and philosophical questions 
which are central to both. The Law and Political Philosophy concentration is fulfilled by 
successful completion of twelve hours of core course requirements, nine hours of recom- 
mended electives, and completion of the normal political science major requirements. Six 
hours of the core course requirements and at least three hours of the recommended electives 
will be taken in the Department of Philosophy and Religion. Courses in the concentration 
provide a humanistic perspective on legal and political questions. The program is suitable 
for those interested in a career in law or government or those who hope to pursue graduate 
studies in either political science or philosophy. 

Social Studies Teacher Education Option— A major in political science may also 
choose a Teacher Education option. This is a 131-credit-hour degree program which 
includes the normal 30-hour major plus the required professional education courses. Suc- 
cessful completion of the program leads to certification to teach social studies in the 
secondary schools. Enrollments may be limited in the Teacher Education Option program. 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN POLITICAL SCIENCE 

The major requirements for a B.S. degree in Political Science are identical to the B.A. 
except that 27 hours of course work in the discipline are required instead of 30. 

MINOR IN POLITICAL SCIENCE 

A minor in Political Science may be elected by students from any curriculum. The minor 
requires 15 hours of political science courses, which must include 9 hours at the 300 level or 
above and a 400 level seminar course. At least three hours must be from each of two of the 
following three pairs of subfields (Pair A: American Politics/Policy and Administration; 
Part B: International or Comparative Politics; Pair C: Political Theory/Social Science

1911 Building (Room 232) 

Professor P. Nelson Reid, Head of the Program 

Lecturer Linda R. Williams, Coordinator of Advising and Admissions 

Professor: P. N. Reid; Associate Professor Emeritus: I. E. Russell; Assistant Professors: J. S. Brown, J. P. Murray; 
Lecturer: L. R. Williams; Adjunct Instructors: D. Courtney, M. Deyampert, W. Dubrick, J. Haire. 

The Social Work Program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education 
and offers the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree. Students complete a curriculum 
based on the liberal arts; and it incorporates a professional foundation, including social 
work practice, human behavior and diversity, community social services, social policy, and 
research methods. Optional courses offer opportunities to study various social work prac- 
tice areas in depth, such as child welfare, health care, multicultural practice, black family, 
and school social work. Students will complete several volunteer experiences and a 480- 
hour field placement in a social service setting. A minor in Social Work is available. 

241 



The purpose of the Social Work Program is to prepare students for entry-level profes- 
sional practice in social work or for advanced graduate-level academic work. The curricu- 
lum includes 59 to 61 hours in English composition, literature, history, natural science, 
mathematics, foreign languages, philosophy, social sciences, and physical education. 
Thirty-six hours of core social work courses, three hours of social work electives, 10 hours of 
sociology and statistics, and 14 to 16 hours of free electives complete the 124-hour gradua- 
tion requirement. 

The Social Work Program is administered through the Division of Multidisciplinary 
Studies. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

Social work is an exciting, challenging, and dynamic profession. No matter what the 
political climate or the changing nature of personal or social need, social workers will be in 
demand. Social workers are employed in a variety of settings which include health care, 
mental health, services to the aging, child welfare, public welfare, substance abuse, public 
schools, developmental disabilities, and many other public and private settings. In each of 
these areas there is recognition of the necessity for professional preparation, and the BSW 
graduate is often looked upon as the right sort of person for a career in these areas of 
practice. North Carolina, and 42 other states, have licensing or certification procedures for 
social work practice. Graduation from the Social Work Program makes the student eligible 
for such licensing or certification. 

MINOR IN SOCIAL WORK 

The minor is designed to familiarize students with the social service system, major social 
welfare programs, and elements of the profession of social work. The student will take five 
required courses and select one additional course from elective offerings which present the 
contribution of professional social work in a number of settings. 

SCHOLARSHIP 

The Social Work Program selects an annual Rosemary Anne Fike Merit Scholarship 
recipient each spring to recognize the junior or senior who represents both academic 
accomplishment and service through the Student Social Work Association. 

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

The Student Social Work Association (SSWA) is open to all social work majors. SSWA 
meets regularly and provides an opportunity for students to socialize and become involved 
in the professional community outside the school. The organization is involved in a wide 
variety of campus and community activities, such as fundraising, lobbying, volunteering, 
and service projects. SSWA provides funds for students to attend professional conferences 
and meetings. SSWA is a program unit of the National Association of Social Workers, 
North Carolina chapter, and students have served as elected representatives to the board of 
directors of the chapter. The SSWA is active and aids in maintaining a sense of unity and 
purpose among the students. 

ADMISSION TO THE PROFESSIONAL DEGREE PROGRAM 

The Social Work faculty is committed to helping all entering students evaluate career 
goals and objectives to ensure that the students meet minimum academic standards, have 
goals and objectives compatible with the major, and know specifically what the profession 
of social work is in terms of its philosophy, value base, and fields of practice. The admissions 
procedure is intended to strengthen the student's certainty regarding career choice and to 
enhance the student's focus and sense of purpose in curriculum planning. Specific compo- 
nents of the admissions procedure include: 1) completion, with a grade of C or better, any 
200-level Social Work course; 2) participation in an orientation session; 3) completion of the 
application for admission; and 4) a personal interview with a faculty advisory committee.

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers introductory and advanced 
courses in sociology and anthropology covering the major sub-fields of the two disciplines. It 
also offers supervised field work and practicum experiences required for certain curricula 
in the department. 

Aims of the departmental offerings are: ( 1) to provide majors with academic background 
and experience useful for many careers in government and industry or for pursuing 
advanced academic work (for a description of the graduate degrees offered by the depart- 
ment, see the NCSU Graduate Catalog) and (2) to provide service courses to students in 
other curricula and to Lifelong Education students. 

The department, jointly administered by the Colleges of Humanities and Social Sciences 
and Agriculture and Life Sciences, offers seven undergraduate curricula. The four cur- 
ricula administered by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences are: Bachelor of Arts 
in Sociology, Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with Criminal Justice option, Bachelor of Arts in 
Sociology with Social Studies Teacher Education option, and Bachelor of Arts in Sociology 
with Anthropology concentration. 

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN SOCIOLOGY 

The following departmental requirements must be met by all students majoring in 
sociology: A minimum of 31 hours in the major field including SOC 300, Social Research 
Methods; SOC 400, Theories of Social Structure; SOC 40 1, Theories of Social Interaction; at 
least three but no more than six credit hours of 200-level sociology courses; at least 15 credit 
hours of 400-level or above sociology courses including SOC 400 and SOC 401. Note: In the 
LCS program (anthropology concentration), 3 credit hours at the UOO-level or above are in 
anthropology. Additional electives in sociology may be at the 300-level or above. ANT 252, 
Cultural Anthropology, is required. A second course in anthropology is strongly recom- 
mended. One course in statistics is also required. 

Criminal Justice Option— The Criminal Justice Option seeks to develop a professional 
orientation that will be relevant both to occupational goals and participation as a citizen in 



244 



community affairs. Couses in both political science and sociology are included in a 28-hour 
block that provides a general background in crime causation and agencies of criminal 
justice plus the opportunity to select from more specific courses dealing with deviance, 
juvenile delinquency, the court system, correctional facilities, and the like, including field 
placement in an agency of the criminal justice system. 

Social Studies Teacher Education Option — This curriculum prepares the student for 
state certification in social studies in the secondary school system. (132 hours required for 
graduation). The inclusion of a professional seimester with practice teaching and the need 
for a broad base in the social sciences makes this a comparatively demanding program with 
somewhat less opportunity for free electives. Courses in education and psychology are taken 
beginning in the sophomore year in preparation for the teaching experience. The student 
learns the basic concepts of economics, political science, anthropology and history, as well 
as sociology. Enrollments in Teacher Education Option programs may be limited. 

Anthropology Concentration — This concentration emphasizes the complementary 
nature of sociology and anthropology in understanding human behavior in social and 
cultural context. It encourages flexibility in selection from both anthropology (12 hours 
within the major plus 6 hours in the social science requirement) and sociology (22 hours) 
courses. The four anthropological subdisciplines of cultural anthropology, physical anthro- 
pology, archaeology, and linguistics are represented in the course offerings. 

MINOR IN ANTHROPOLOGY 

A minor in Anthropology focuses on the comparative study of human beings, with 
emphasis on both the physical and cultural aspects. A flexible selection of courses (15 credit 
hours) includes offerings from anthropological subdisciplines such as cultural anthropol- 
ogy, physical anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics. 

MINOR IN SOCIOLOGY 

This minor emphasizes sociological theory and research with substantive applications. 
The minor builds on theory and methodology and allows students flexibility in the choice of 
subdisciplines such as criminology, stratification, demography, social psychology, race and 
ethnic relations, or the family.

The accounting program provides education and training to individuals who will pursue 
careers as professional accountants in business, government, industry or public account- 
ing. The Department of Accounting currently offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Account- 
ing. In order to meet the demands of employment markets for more highly skilled account- 
ing professionals and respond to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants' 
mandated 1 50 hour education requ i rement by the year 2000, the Department of Accounting 
plans to initiate a fifth year Master of Accounting degree program in 1994. 



247 



OPPORTUNITIES 

Accounting systems and the accountants who maintain them are absolutely essential to 
the functioning of business enterprises of all types and sizes; to government at all levels; and 
to nonprofit organizations. Many career opportunities are available to accounting gradu- 
ates. Starting salaries are among the highest of all university graduates and potential 
earnings over a lifetime are excellent. 

The accounting profession is organized into three major employment groups: (1) approx- 
imately 60 percent of accountants are employed in business entities, (2) another 10 percent 
work in nonbusiness entities, and (3) about 30 percent are in public practice. Public 
accountants offer auditing tax preparation and planning, and management consulting to 
individuals, businesses and other organizations on a fee basis. Management or industrial 
accountants design financial and cost accounting systems and provide their companies with 
financial management, financial analysis, planning and budgeting, product costing, and 
operational auditing. Governmental units and other not-for-profit entities have informa- 
tional needs similar to private businesses. Accountants employed by such entities perform 
many of the same functions. Accountants in some governmental agencies, such as the SEC, 
IRS and FBI, serve the dual function of auditing and law enforcement. 

Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), Certified Management Accountants (CMAs), Cer- 
tified Internal Auditors (CIAs) and Certified Cost Analysts (CCAs) are individuals who, 
like doctors, dentists, and lawyers, are licensed to practice their profession. Such certifica- 
tions are granted to those accountants who pass a qualifying examination and meet certain 
accounting experience and educational requirements. 

Sitting for a professional licensing exam upon graduation and becoming "certified" is an 
important professional achievement. All NCSU accounting program graduates are eligi- 
ble to sit for these professional exams. NCSU graduates regularly exceed both state and 
national pass rates on such professional exams. 

SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS 

Approximately ten achievement awards sponsored by businesses and public accounting 
firms are made to outstanding juniors annually. A special accounting faculty fund supports 
similar awards for outstanding incoming freshmen each year.

'In addition to NCSU and College of Management residency requirements, Accounting majors must complete at least six 
of the following seven courses in residency at NCSU: ACC 310, 311, 312, 320, 330. 450 and the departmental elective. 

^Beyond the minimum requirements, students should plan (with the aid of their adviser) to complete additional course- 
work to fulfill the requirements of their career objectives. Some of these courses may be required or suggested by various 
professional certifying boards. For example, CPA candidates should take ACC 460 and 490. CM A candidates should take 
ACC 420, and CIA candidates should take ACC 451. The additional coursework is flexible and depends upon the 
student's background and career orientation. Additional courses may be included in the curriculum category labeled 
"free" electives. In some cases, the additional course work will require either an extra semester or summer school 
attendance (i.e., in addition to the minimum 127 semester hours required for graduation). 

'A "General Policies" statement for all College of Management majors is available in Nelson Hall 114. It serves as an 
addendum to the curriculum requirements and describes GPA requirements for graduation, residency requirements, 
suspension policy, required grades in specific courses, course repeat policy, etc. 

MINOR IN ACCOUNTING 

The Department of Accounting offers a minor in Accounting to any undergraduate 
degree student outside the College of Management. The Accounting minor is offered to 
students interested in gaining a basic knowledge of accounting and an understanding of 
how accounting information is used to make rational decisions by individuals, businesses, 
and society. The minor requires 15 hours of accounting courses and includes an introduc- 
tion to financial, managerial, and tax accounting principles and practices. The minor is not 
intended to prepare students for a professional accounting career. Please consult the 
College of Management for specific information about admission and other requirements.

The Department of Economics offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in 
Economics. Successful completion of an undergraduate degree in economics prepares a 
student for careers in business or government and for advanced education. Economics 
students can develop expertise in monetary policy and financial institutions, international 
trade and finance, labor and industrial relations, environmental and natural resource 
economics, government expenditures and taxation, economic history, and a variety of other 
fields. A degree in economics is attractive to employers because it provides a thorough 
understanding of our economic system and allows the flexibility to tailor your education to 
your career plans. An economics degree is also excellent preparation for a variety of 
graduate degrees as well as for professional degrees in business or law. 

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN ECONOMICS 

The Bachelor of Arts in Economics provides for a liberal arts oriented study of one of the 
most important of the social sciences. The major course work for the Bachelor of Arts in 
Economics consists of 12 semester hours of economic theory and 6 semester hours devoted to 
statistics and computer science. Additionally, students study at least 15 semester hours of 
advanced, applied economics. The degree program provides for substantial flexibility to 
allow students to tailor their studies to their particular interests and academic objectives. 
The degree requirements are currently being revised and students are strongly encouraged 
to consult with their faculty advisors to select courses which are consistent with current 
requirements. A sample schedule under the current curriculum is given below.

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ECONOMICS 

The Bachelor of Science in Economics provides training in the analytical methods and 
the body of knowledge of economics. This program differs from the Bachelor of Arts by 
having less emphasis on the liberal arts and greater emphasis on mathematics and techni- 
cal courses. The degree requirements are currently being revised and students are strongly 
encouraged to consult with their faculty advisors to select courses which are consistent with 
current requirements. 

MINOR IN ECONOMICS 

The minor in Economics is designed to acquaint students with an understanding of 
theory and methods of economics and to introduce them to the application of Economics to 
contemporary social issues. The minor in Economics is an excellent compliment to many 
fields of study in the University. To complete the minor in Economics students must take 
EC 201 (or ARE 212), EC 301, EC 302 and two additional economics courses for a total of 15 
semester hours.

The College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences offers students, whose interests lie in 
the basic as well as the applied science and mathematical areas, programs of study and 
research at both the graduate and undergraduate level that lead to many career opportuni- 
ties. In addition, the College provides the core science and mathematical education support 
for the entire University. The College consists of five academic departments: Chemistry, 
Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics. It jointly 
administers academic programs in Biochemistry. The Center for Research in Scientific 
Computing. The Institute of Statistics, the Natural Resources Research Center, the Preci- 
sion Engineering Center, the Center for Advanced Electronic Materials Processing, the 
microelectronics research activities, and biotechnology research activities are also asso- 
ciated in part with the College. 

Graduates of the College are recruited for technical and administrative positions in 
industrial research and development laboratories, universities and colleges, non-profit 
research organizations and government agencies. A large percentage of the graduates 
undertake advanced study in medical or other professional schools as well as further study 
leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. 

The high school student who enjoys computers, mathematics, chemistry, geology, marine 
science, atmospheric science, or physics and who has an interest in natural phenomena and 
their fundamental descriptions, should consider the career opportunities in the physical 
and mathematical sciences. Students in the College consistently perform very well as 
undergraduates: approximately one-third of the students graduate with honors. 

FACILITIES 

Each department in the College utilizes a number of highly specialized research facili- 
ties. These range from highly specialized laboratories such as those in solid state physics or 
nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to state-of-the-art instruments such as X-ray 
diffractometers and electron spin resonance spectrometers. These laboratories are rou- 
tinely utilized by advanced undergraduates taking part in research programs. In addition, 
each department maintains up-to-date instructional and research computer laboratories 
and each has access to the CRAY YMP super computer in the Research Triangle Park. 
These facilities are utilized not only for graduate research but for undergraduate research 
and instruction. A detailed list of specialized equipment is available upon request for each 
department. 

TUTORIAL AND AUDIO-VISUAL ASSISTANCE 

Most of the departments in the College offer students some form of free tutorial assis- 
tance, and several departments provide facilities for students to use supplementary video- 
taped or computer-assisted instructional materials on a voluntary basis.

CURRICULA 

The College offers undergraduate programs of study leading to the Bachelor of Science 
degree with a major in chemistry, geology, mathematics, meteorology, natural resources, 
physics or statistics. We anticipate offering a new degree in Environmental Sciences in the 
near future. These curricula have similar freshman years, enabling a freshman to change, 
without loss of time, from one department to another in the College. In addition, the College 
offers programs of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in geology or 
chemistry. A one year general program (PMU) is offered to students who want to major in 
one of these curricula but have not yet made a decision. Minors are offered in geology, 
mathematics, meteorology, physics and statistics. 

PREMEDICAL SCIENCES 

Medical and dental schools as well as many other health-related professional schools have 
long regarded degree programs in the core physical and mathematical sciences as excellent 
"pre-professional" curricula. Some professional schools prefer the in-depth knowledge 
gained by this route over those curricula which offer a cursory view of a variety of topics. 
For further details, contact Dr. Robert Bereman, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. 

SHORT COURSES AND INSTITUTES 

Several short courses and specialized institutes are offered throughout the academic year 
and during the summer months in chemistry, geology, mathematics, physics, and statistics 
for high school and college faculty. For information contact the Associate Dean of the 
College. 

In addition, certain regular courses may be taken for credit through correspondence or 
evening classes through the Division of Continuing Education in Raleigh, Charlotte, or the 
Greensboro-Burlington-Winston-Salem area. For information write Adult Credit Pro- 
grams and Summer Sessions, Box 7401, NCSU, Raleigh, N.C. 27695-7401. 

SCHOLARS AND HONORS PROGRAMS 

Exceptional students may be selected to participate in the University Scholars Program 
of the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences. Enriched courses in chemistry, 
English, mathematics, and physics have been developed specifically for program partici- 
pants. At the beginning of the junior year, promising students may select special courses, 
and begin to participate in undergraduate research and honors programs, for which they 
may receive some graduate credit toward the Master of Science degree during the senior 
year. 

Well-prepared students entering the College may seek advanced placement in biology, 
chemistry, computer science, foreign language, history, mathematics, or physics by pass- 
ing qualifying examinations.

Chemistry is the science dealing with the composition, structure, and properties of all 
substances and changes that they undergo. Chemists have contributed to the synthetic fiber 
industry, petroleum products and fuels, plastics, the food processing industry, nuclear 
energ>', electronics, modern drugs and medicine. Today's chemists are concerned with the 
fundamental building blocks of all materials — atoms and molecules — leading to improve- 
ment of old materials, development of substitutes or new ones, and an understanding of our 
material environment. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

The chemical industry is the nation's largest manufacturing industry. Chemists com- 
prise the largest proportion of scientists in the United States and future demand for 
chemists should continue to grow. A variety of jobs are open to the chemist: biochemistry 
and other biological areas, education, medicine, law, metallurgy, space science, ocean- 
ography, sales and management, pure research and development. Chemists are employed 
in every field based on modern technology; opportunities for chemists in the field of 
education are many and varied. 

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN CHEMISTRY 

The B.A. program offers a more flexible course of studies for students who may not plan 
to become professional chemists but who desire an interdisciplinary program with an 
emphasis on chemistry. The proper choice of electives will prepare the graduate for one of 
the following: medical, veterinary or dental school, work in chemical sales and manage- 
ment, teaching in secondary schools, work in environmental science, or graduate school in 
an allied science. Since the first three semesters are essentially identical to those of the B.S. 
program, students may enter the B.A. program either directly from high school or some 
later point after entering the University.

Minimum hours required for graduation 127 

Because of the inherent flexibility of the B.A. curriculum in chemistry, students entering into the program must work 
closely with their faculty adviser in selecting an area of concentration outside the major, based upon their career or 
postgraduate goals. 



'Thirty hours of humanities and social science courses are required with a minimum of 12 hours of humanities and 12 
hours of social sciences. The remaining 6 hours may come from humanities or social science courses, including 
Multidisciplinary Studies and Arts Studies courses. 

^Advised electives are designed to allow the students to concentrate in areas related to academic or career goals. The 
courses used to fulfill this requirement are selected after students consult with their faculty advisers. 

^The University is currently modifying its "General Education Requirements" that must be met by all NCSU students. 
One of the changes to be implemented requires foreign language proficiency at the FL_ 102 level for graduation. This 
proficiency will be established by an examination administered by the Foreign Language Department or by successfully 
completing FL_ 102. Courses required to establish the foreign language proficiency cannot be used to meet graduation 
requirements. FL_201 or higher in the student's first language or any FL_ course in a second language can be used to 
satisfy graduation requirements.

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN CHEMISTRY 

The curriculum, accredited by the American Chemical Society, includes a strong, broad 
background in mathematics, physics and the liberal arts. The basic areas of organic, 
physical, inorganic and analytical chemistry are stressed. Laboratory and classroom work 
develop the skills, knowledge and inquiring spirit necessary for a successful career in 
chemistry. The advised elective credits allow individual diversity at the junior and senior 
levels. Many undergraduates participate in current departmental research through part- 
time employment or research projects. The B.S. curriculum prepares the student to enter 
the job market directly as a chemist or to enter various professional schools or graduate 
schools in chemistry or an allied science. This route is also an excellent premedical 
program.

The Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences provides education and 
training in the three complementary disciplines of the earth's physical environment. The 
striking development in the sciences in recent years is the awareness of the interconnected- 
ness of planetary system science. We are becoming increasingly cognizant of the couplings 
of ocean to atmosphere to land. Courses, curricula, and research programs in the depart- 
ment consequently deal with many aspects of two very important human concerns: envir- 
onmental sciences and natural resources. The department awards the B.A. degree in 
geology; the B.S. degree in geology with options either in traditional geology or in geophys- 
ics; and the B.S. degree in meteorology. In addition, concentrations in marine and coastal 
resources and geological resources are offered through the Natural Resources Curriculum. 
(Consult the Graduate Catalog for information pertaining to graduate degrees offered.) 

Geology/Geophysics (Earth Science) is the study of the solid earth. It can be subdivided 
into the interrelated areas of: the earth's influence upon humanity (hydrogeology, surficial 
processes, quantitative geomorphology, engineering, petroleum and economic and envir- 
onmental geology); rocks and minerals (mineralogy, petrology, and ore deposits); nature 
and behavior of earth materials (structural geology, geophysics, geochemistry, and geo- 
morphology); earth history (historical geology, stratigraphy, tectonics and paleontology). 
Instruction within the geology degree programs includes course work in each of these 
areas. The geophysics option includes a core of basic geology courses, but in addition 
provides a thorough grounding in geophysics and related sciences. This program involves 
more coursework in physics, mathematics and computer science than does the traditional 
geology B.S. and applies these quantitative sciences to an understanding of the hidden 
earth. This is accomplished through the measurement and interpretation of earth's physi- 
cal properties (e.g. magnetic, electric, gravity, seismic) at all scales. 

Geologists and geophysicists apply scientific techniques to solve those problems in nature 
that will result in a better understanding and utilization of our environment and natural 
resources. Geologic and geophysical principles are used (1) to discover, evaluate, develop 
and conserve our natural resources (fossil fuels, minerals, water and metals), (2) to find 
solutions to problems related to global climate change, sealevel rise, the disposal of liquid 
and solid wastes, (3) in determining the geologic settings for highways, dams, tunnels, and 
power plants and (4) to help prevent or alleviate the consequences of natural disasters such 
as earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, dam failures, and highway collapse. 

Meteorology (Atmospheric Science) is the study of all aspects of the behavior and 
phenomena of the atmosphere, including its interactions with earth's land and sea surfaces 

258 



and with the solar atmosphere. Its objective is to apply an understanding of the atmosphere 
to the benefit of humanity. 

Few activities on earth are unaffected by the natural conditions and processes of our 
atmospheric environment. The most familiar purpose of meteorology is in providing 
weather reports, warning, and forecasts which are essential to aviation, shipping, agricul- 
ture, power utilization, outdoor recreation and to the protection of humans from weather 
hazards and damage. Meteorology is applied to the understanding and alleviation of other 
environmental concerns such as air pollution, acid rain, and weather modification. The 
concern about environmental quality has led to expanded efforts in atmospheric modeling 
and monitoring in research applied to industrial operations, environmental planning and 
governmental regulation. Basic subdivisions in the field of meteorology are synoptic and 
dynamic, boundary layer, air pollution, and agricultural meteorology; cloud and aerosol 
physics; and climatology. 

Oceanography (Marine Science) encompasses the studies of the chemistry, geology, 
physics and biology of the marine environment and relationships with the earth, atmos- 
phere and biosphere. Thus oceanography is an interdisciplinary science which integrates 
the basic fundamental principles of biology, chemistry, geology, geophysics, mathematics, 
meteorology, physics and statistics. In our solar system, planet Earth is the oblate blue gem, 
so characterized because more than seventy-five percent of its surface is covered by oceans, 
estuaries and lakes; water bodies which control the Earth's climate. Faculty and students 
study topics ranging from coastal and estuarine processes to the interaction of the ocean and 
atmosphere to the role of the ocean in climate. Specific courses and areas of concentration 
with focus on marine science are offered within the basic disciplines of atmospheric, 
biological, chemical, geological, and physics based sciences. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

The Department has access to a wide variety of computer services. These range from 
Department facilities (discussed below), to college and University facilities, and the North 
Carolina Supercomputing Facility. The University and State operate a state-of-the-art 
computer network that allows access to computer resources within the University, State 
and nationally. In addition, the State operates CONCERT, Communications for North 
Carolina Education, Research and Technology, that links universities, research institu- 
tions and graduate centers throughout North Carolina via a high-speed computer network 
and interactive video networks. 

The Department has access to the Air and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory of 
the Environmental Protection Administration which includes a large flow visualization 
laboratory. 

The Department offers extensive research activities in ocean sciences. It is a member of 
the Duke/UNC Oceanographic Consortium, which operates the R/V Cape Hatteras, a 135 
ft. oceanographic research vessel; a member of the Cooperative Institute of Fisheries 
Oceanography, a joint venture of the National Marine Fisheries Service of the National 
Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and a number of Universities within the 
State; and offers a cooperative degree program with the University of North Carolina at 
Wilmington. Through these activities the Department has access to outstanding coastal 
marine facilities for teaching and research. Current research activities in the Department 
are worldwide in scope. Researchers and their students are currently working on activities 
that range from regional severe storm research and coastal zone studies to global climate 
studies. These activities take researchers to all six continents, including Antarctica, and to 
all of the oceans. 

Problems involving energy and mineral resources and the environment are complex. 
Geologists and geophysicists are currently employed by environmental and geotechnical 
consulting firms, oil and coal companies, mining and quarrying concerns, mineral explora- 
tion companies, construction firms, cement companies, and railroads; coastal and forest 
service agencies; schools, colleges, museums and research institutions; and city, state and 
federal agencies (e.g. the Geological Survey). 

Meteorological and oceanographic services are provided by federal government agen- 
cies, primarily the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Departments of 

259 



Defense and Energy, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Envir- 
onmental Protection Agency. This work may involve atmospheric and oceanic sensing and 
measurement, including the use of satellites, ships and aircraft data analysis and computa- 
tion; weather forecasting, and guidance service to aeronautics, defense and public safety 
agencies, agriculture, forestry, hydrology, recreation and public health. Meteorologists are 
involved in environmental planning and regulation at the state and local levels. Power 
generation and fuel transmission industries, engineering firms, environmental consulting 
firms, insurance companies, major retailing businesses, as well as schools, colleges and 
research institutions employ meteorologists because of recognition of the involvement of the 
atmosphere in their activities. 

FACILITIES 

The Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences maintains an extensive 
inventory of both laboratory and field research equipment and facilities. In addition the RV 
Cape Hatteras, specialized equipment in the department includes an X-ray fluorescence 
spectrometer, an automated X-ray diffractometer, neutron activation analysis equipment, 
geophysics instruments; (e.g., gravimeter, magnetometer, and seismic reflection equip- 
ment), radioisotope and stable isotope analytical equipment, and a phytotron. Some of the 
specialized laboratories in the department include Electron Microprobe Laboratory; X- 
Ray Diffractometer Laboratory; Sedimentology Laboratory (microcomputer controlled 
grain-size analysis); Stable Isotope Laboratory; High Precision Liquid Chromotography 
Laboratory; Motion Analysis Laboratory; Satellite Oceanography and Image Analysis

motion and composition; Planetary Boundary-Layer Laboratory, including a large variety 
of instrumentation for monitoring physical processes at the land-air and sea-air interface. 

CURRICULA IN MARINE, EARTH AND ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES 

The B. A. and B.S. degree programs in geology require similar geology courses, but differ 
in their content of social-humanities, mathematics, and collateral physical sciences. The 
B.A. program is designed to be similar to a B.S. degree in geology obtained from other 
universities, while the B.S. program is more technically oriented, and similar to other 
curricula in the physical sciences at NCSU. The B.S. degree program in meteorology also 
follows the pattern of physical sciences curricula. Marine science tracks follow the patterns

The undergraduate major in mathematics provides a core of basic mathematics courses 
along with flexible choices of electives which permit both a well-rounded education and 
preparation for math-related careers. Because of the current employment market (for both 
baccalaureate and graduate students), students are advised to give serious consideration to 
the applied mathematics option. 

Career objectives can be directed toward employment in math-related jobs in business, 
industry, or government, teaching at the secondary school level, or graduate study in 
mathematics and/or related areas. 

The Mathematics Department operates a Multi Media Center which incorporates an 
Audio Visual Center, Tutorial Room, Undergraduate Mathematics Computer Lab and an 
IBM Computer Classroom. Using video systems, students can access a lecture which was 
missed or can see a lecture again for emphasis or clarification. Teaching assistants of the 
Mathematics Department are also available in the center for tutoring services. The compu- 
ter lab contains Sun Sparc Workstations and IBM Rise 6000 workstation which students 
use with MAPLE, a computer algebra system. The IBM Computer Classroom contains 
twenty IBM computers networked on Token Ring. 

At this time, the center has video tapes of most of our basic courses, including MA 103, 
MA 105. MA 111, MA 114, MA 121, MA 131. MA 141, MA 231. MA 241. MA 242 and MA 
301. 

The Director of the center is Dr. Joe Marlin. The center supervisor is Denise Seabrooks. 
The center is open seventy-one hours per week and is located in Harrelson Hall.

Physics is the fundamental science of observation, measurement and mathematical 
description of nature. In addition to establishing basic knowledge of physical phenomena, 
physics provides the foundation for modern technology. Contributions by physicists are 
wide ranging: discovery of elementary particles, invention and use of instruments to 
investigate interplanetary space, study of processes fundamental to the release of thermo- 
nuclear energy, development of lasers and solid state devices, research on the structure and 
interaction of nucleons, nuclei, atoms, molecules, and ions. 

PROGRAMS 

The Physics Department offers a program of study at the undergraduate level which 
provides the student with a strong fundamental background and with course options 
allowing deeper study of selected areas of individual interest. At the graduate level, a 
comprehensive fundamental preparation is followed by specialization and research in one 
of the following areas: atmospheric, astrophysics, atomic, nuclear magnetic resonance, 
relativity and solid state physics. (See listing of graduate degrees and consult the Graduate 
Catalog.) 

PHYSICS CURRICULUM 

The undergraduate curriculum in physics provides the basic training for a career in

Statistics is the body of scientific methodology which deals with the logic of experiment 
and survey design, the efficient collection and presentation of quantitative information, and 



270 



the formulation of valid and reliable inferences from sample data. The computer is used as a 
research tool by the statistician to perform the tasks of management and analysis of data 
collected from experiments and surveys. 

The Department of Statistics is part of the Institute of Statistics, which includes Depart- 
ments of Biostatistics and Statistics at Chapel Hill. The Department of Statistics provides 
instruction, consultation and computational services on research projects for other 
departments of all colleges at North Carolina State University including the Agricultural 
Research Service. Department staff are engaged in research in statistical theory and 
methodology. This range of activities furnishes a professional environment for training 
students in the use of statistical procedures in the physical, biological and social sciences, 
and in industrial research and development. 

OPPORTUNITIES 

The importance of sound statistical thinking in the design and analysis of quantitative 
studies is generally recognized and is reflected in the abundance of job opportunities for 
statisticians. Industry relies on statistical methods to control the quality of goods in the 
process of manufacture and to determine the acceptability of goods produced. Statistical 
procedures based on scientific sampling have become basic tools in such diverse fields as 
weather forecasting, opinion polling, crop and livestock estimation, and business trend 
prediction. Because one can improve the efficiency of use of increasingly complex and 
expensive experiment and survey data, the statistician is in demand wherever quantitative 
studies are conducted. 

SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS 

The Department of Statistics recognizes the importance of superior academic perfor- 
mance through the awarding of scholarships and certificates of merit. Two scholarships are 
available for the freshman year for the purpose of attracting academically superior stu- 
dents. The North Carolina State University Chapter of Mu Sigma Rho, the national 
statistics honorary fraternity, accepts as members students who have had superior perfor- 
mance in statistics courses. Also, the outstanding senior statistics student is recognized 
through the awarding of an engraved plaque. 

STATISTICS CURRICULUM 

The undergraduate curriculum provides basic training for a career in statistics or for 
graduate study and leads to the Bachelor of Science in Statistics. In addition to statistics, 
the curriculum includes study in mathematics, computer science, and the biological/physi- 
cal sciences. While fulfilling their major elective requirements, students can either elect a 
minor or distribute their study across fields exploring the application of statistics in other 
fields, such as agriculture and life sciences, computer science, economics and business, 
industrial engineering, and the social sciences. A cooperative work-study option is also 
available.

The field of textiles is broad. It covers almost every aspect of our daily lives with 
applications in medicine, space, recreation and sports, personal safety, environmental 
improvement and control, transportation, household and apparel uses. These versatile 
materials, textiles, are made to design specifications by a variety of modern high speed 
processes, utilizing tools such as lasers, electronics and computers. Textiles begins with the 
synthesis of fibers by man or by nature; textiles are carried through many processes for 
fabric formation, including the steps necessary to make fabrics useful, such as the manu- 
facture of dyestuffs and colorants, chemical auxiliaries and finishes, and cutting and 
fashioning into end-use products. 

The approximately 5,000 graduates of the College of Textiles hold diverse positions, 
many in North Carolina. In the textile and related industries, occupations range from 
manufacturing management, sales, and corporate management to designing and styling, 
research and development, technical service, quality control and personnel management. 
These textile graduates are in the creative and management decision-making aspects of the 
industry. They plan the flow of materials, processes and information. They create new 
products and processes. They solve product and process problems. They create styles, 
designs, patterns, colors, textures, and structures for apparel, home and industrial uses. 
They engineer systems and products required of industrial, space, medical, apparel and 
other uses of textile products. They deal with computers, automation, product quality, plant 
performance and environmental problems. They manage large and small companies, 
personnel, and systems. 

The College of Textiles prepares its graduates for careers in these occupations. A broad 
background is stressed; two-thirds of the course work normally comes from other depart- 
ments of the University. Opportunities remain excellent, with the college maintaining one 
of the University's best placement records. Demand for textile graduates from North 
Carolina State University is particularly strong, due mainly to the strength of the academic 
programs. These programs are offered by two degree granting departments: Textile and 
Apparel Management, and Textile Engineering, Chemistry, and Science. 

CURRICULA 

The College of Textiles offers a broad choice of curricula from which to choose. Bachelor 
of Science programs in Textiles, Textile and Apparel Management, Textile Materials 
Science and Textile Chemistry are available. These programs allow students to choose from 
a wide range of courses in addition to required core courses. A Bachelor of Science in 
Textile Engineering, offered jointly by the College of Textiles and the College of Engineer- 
ing, is also available. The textile student's curriculum includes humanities, social sciences 
and basic sciences and may include concentrations in business, economics, industrial 
engineering, mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science or statistics. A variety of 
dual degree possibilities are open to textile students, usually requiring at least 12 semesters 
additional study. 



273 



Inasmuch as professional textiles study is concentrated in the last two years of the 
student's program, it is possible for students from junior or community colleges, or other 
institutions of higher learning, to transfer to the College of Textiles with a minimum loss of 
time. 

FIELD TRIPS 

For certain textile courses, it is desirable for the student to see the manufacturing process 
under actual operating conditions. When possible, student groups visit outstanding manu- 
facturing plants. Trip participation is required; transportation costs and other travel 
expenses, while held to a minimum, are paid by the student. 

SUMMER EMPLOYMENT 

Job opportunities for summer employment are available for textile students. Placement 
assistance is available through the college placement office and frequently can be arranged 
in the student's home community. Qualified students may arrange to receive academic 
credit through the Summer Intern program. 

DEGREES 

Upon completion of programs in either textiles, textile and apparel management, textile 
materials science, textile chemistry or textile engineering, the degree of Bachelor of 
Science is conferred. 

The College of Textiles offers the following graduate degrees: Master of Textiles: Master 
of Science in Textiles. Master of Science in Textile Chemistry. Doctor of Philosophy in 
Fiber and Polymer Science, and Doctor of Textile Technology and Management. For 
general requirements consult the Graduate Catalog. 

By faculty agreement candidates for the Doctor of Philosophy degree in other schools of 
this University may specialize in textile-related subjects. In such cases, research is usually 
done in textiles. 

ELI WHITNEY DOUBLE DEGREE PROGRAM IN TEXTILE AND APPAREL 
MANAGEMENT AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES 

The joint program between the College of Textiles and the College of Humanities and 
Social Sciences allows a student to earn a B.S. degree in Textile and Apparel Management 
and a B.A. degree in Multidisciplinary Studies with a concentration in International 
Studies. This dual degree is designed to prepare students for work in the increasingly 
international textile industry. The program includes all the technical course requirements 
associated with the Textile and Apparel Management degree. For the B.A. in Multi- 
disciplinary Studies, students choose from among three areas of concentration: the Pacific 
Rim (language study in Japanese or Chinese), Latin America (language study in Spanish), 
or Europe (language study in German or Italian). The program, which takes four to five 
years to complete, also includes possible overseas internships. 

Merit scholarship awards are available for high-achieving students who participate in 
the double degree program. For more information, contact the Department of Textile and 
Apparel Management, Centennial Campus, Rm 3245 Textile Complex or the Assistant 
Dean of Undergraduate Studies, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, 106 Caldwell 
Hall. 

FOUR-ONE PROGRAM 

The College of Textiles has a program which permits a student with a baccalaureate 
degree from an accredited college or university to complete the requirements for a Bache- 
lor of Science degree in textiles, textile and apparel management, textile materials science 
or textile chemistry after the satisfactory completion of a minimum of one year of study. 

Applicants should have completed basic economics, mathematics and chemistry require- 
ments comparable with those required for the textile degree sought. Under these condi- 



274 



tions, the student generally may complete the degree requirements in two summer sessions 
and two regular semesters. Students not meeting specific requirements in business, eco- 
nomics, sciences, or mathematics should remove deficiencies prior to entering a specific 
degree program, otherwise the program of study may require three or more semesters. 

Each applicant's undergraduate program is considered individually and, in general, a 
complete transfer of credits is possible. 

HONORS PROGRAM 

This program offers the exceptional student an opportunity to explore an area of special 
interest with exposure to various forms of research or independent study. Academically- 
promising entrants to the college, and students who show academic excellence during the 
freshman year, are assigned to honors advisers and are regarded as honors candidates. 
Special lectures, discussion groups and seminars in the freshman and sophomore years 
introduce the possibilities for future development in the honors program. Towards the end 
of the freshman year, selected honors candidates are invited to become full members of the 
honors program. In the sophomore year, with an honors adviser's consent, honors students 
may begin to develop programs of strength in a special interest area. This may necessitate 
the substitution of preferred courses for those normally required, with the exception of 
certain basic textile courses. In the junior and senior year the student develops special 
interests, culminating in an honors thesis. The honors thesis ranges from a scholarly review 
of a special topic to a discussion of an experimental research problem. 

HONOR SOCIETY 

Sigma Tau Sigma is the scholastic textile fraternity which was founded in the College of 
Textiles in 1929 to honor students who have a grade point average of 3.25 or higher. The 
main goal of this fraternity is to create a high standard of scholarship among textile 
students. Twice every year the local chapter selects as its prospective members junior 
textile students who meet the above criterion. Sigma Tau Sigma also promotes excellence 
by awarding a trophy to the graduating senior with the highest overall grade point average 
in the college. 

TEXTILE SCHOLARS-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM 

This program is sponsored by the College of Textiles and the Division of Student Affairs. 
It is a four-year program with emphasis on a textile seminar series and educational and 
cultural enrichment activities. These co-curricular activities include seminars on special 
topics related to the textile curriculum and profession, tutorial sessions, field trips and 
musical and drama performances. Students are invited to join this program after their 
acceptance at NCSU based on their predicted performance and must maintain a GPA of 3.0 
to continue. All students are housed together with upperclassmen living with freshmen 
whenever possible. 

ASSOCIATE OF THE TEXTILE INSTITUTE (ATI) DIPLOMA 

The Textile Institute with headquarters in Manchester, England is a prestigious inter- 
national professional textile organization. This organization recognizes graduates from 
most of the College of Textiles programs who have achieved a GPA of 2.8 or higher. These 
graduates will be granted full exemption from the ATI examination. 

Selected students enrolled in the textile design concentration with junior standing are 
given the opportunity to spend the spring semester of the junior year at the Scottish College 
of Textiles while registered for textile design courses at NCSU. Tuition and fees are paid at 
the regular rate to NCSU. Travel costs for the selected students will be funded through the 
Louis Cramer Award in textile design which is administered by the College of Textiles. 
Each student will be responsible for costs of accommodations, meals and other personal 
needs. 

Similar arrangements are available for students of the Scottish College of Textiles. The 
total exchange program is limited to 12 credit hours. 



275 



ECOLE SUPERIEURE DES TECHNIQUES INDUSTRIELLES ET DES 
TEXTILES (ESTIT), LILLE, FRANCE, EXCHANGE PROGRAM 

Selected students enrolled in the textile engineering and textile chemistry degree pro- 
grams are given the opportunity to spend a semester or a year at ESTIT while registered at 
NCSU. Tuition and fees are paid at the regular rate to NCSU. Each student is responsible 
for cost of accommodations, meals and other personal needs. 

Similar arrangements are available for students of ESTIT. 

SILVER DESIGN MEDAL OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF ARTS, LONDON 

The Royal Society of Arts, London has selected North Carolina State University as one of 
the universities eligible to award its silver medal to one graduate each year. This award is 
given to a student who demonstrates excellence in the field of textile styling/design and is 
presented at the May commencement ceremonies.

for alternating semesters of full-time study and full-time work. A minimum of three work 
periods is required to complete the program. 

FACILITIES 

The new College of Textiles became a reality in the spring of 1991. The Centennial 
Campus, which contains the new facility as well as other research and educational facilities, 
has now grown to approximately 1,000 acres. 

The North Carolina General Assembly allocated $27 million to build the College of 
Textiles facility and an additional $6 million for equipment modernization. The 298,000 
square foot facility has been planned by the faculty and staff at the college, in conjunction 
with a review process for recommendation and improvements from key industry repre- 
sentatives. Space allocation for undergraduate programs is 34%, and for graduate and 
research program, 31%. 

The college has developed a Model Manufacturing Facility within the new building that 
is capable of extruding fiber; spinning, weaving/knitting and finishing fabric; producing 
nonwovens; and constructing garments. This facility is the only one of its kind in the world 
dedicated to textile industry/ academic sponsorship. One of the first projects to be developed 
is a total and complete CIM environment within its laboratories. 



276 



The College of Textiles on the Centennial Campus is the center for textile education and 
research in the U.S. Within its walls are a critical mass of students, faculty, facilities, and 
programs that will "make a difference" for the U.S. fiber, textile, and apparel industries. 

SPECIAL SERVICES 

The College of Textiles offers several services and programs which enrich its academic 
programs. 

Textile and Apparel Research is conducted on a wide variety of problems relating to 
the fiber, textile and apparel industries. Frequently, the problems are interdisciplinary 
and involve team effort. Students have an opportunity to participate in the solution to 
current problems. 

Textiles Extension and Continuing Education is vigorously participated in by all 
faculty. It serves the needs of the textile industry to disseminating research findings and 
offering short courses for executive, scientific and supervisory personnel. The two-way 
exchange in these activities keeps students and faculty informed on all of the latest 
developments. 

The Office of Student Services is responsible for the placement and financial aid 
programs of the College of Textiles. The placement office brings together industry recruit- 
ers and students for interview sessions for permanent and summer employment. Alumni 
may also take advantage of the placement office. 

The financial aid function is operated by a committee. It is possible for any North 
Carolina student to pursue an education in textiles through scholarships, loans or grants, as 
long as he or she maintains the University's academic standards. 

TEXTILE OFF-CAMPUS TELEVISED EDUCATION (TOTE) 

TOTE is a special videocassette-based project designed to give any qualified person, 
anywhere in the world, an opportunity to participate in College of Textiles courses pre- 
viously only available to those willing and able to travel to Raleigh, NC. Knowledge can be 
gained and college credit can be earned. Color television is the medium TOTE uses to 
deliver courses. Recordings are made in a specially designed studio/classroom at the 
College of Textiles on Centennial Campus at NCSU. Regularly scheduled classes meet in 
the studio/classroom and are recorded in such a manner as to retain the normal classroom 
atmosphere. Lectures are presented in total, candidly and informally. This also allows 
students physically in the class at NCSU, the option of viewing the tape in the library on 
Centennial Campus if they miss a class. 

TOTE students off-campus are on a schedule approximately one week behind the Uni- 
versity semester calendar.

The Department of Textile and Apparel Management offers bachelor of science degrees 
in Textile and Apparel Management and in Textiles. Each degree permits the student to 
specialize in concentrations and the curricula combine a foundation both in textile man- 
agement and textile technology principles and applications. The B.S. Textile and Apparel 
Management degree has a Management concentration and an Apparel concentration, 
while the B.S. Textiles degree has a Technology concentration and a Design concentration. 

The B.S. in Textile and Apparel Management, together with its concentrations, provides 
opportunities for the student to get additional background in apparel manufacturing, 
production factors, law and labor relations, management science, finance and accounting. 

The B.S. in Textiles, Technology concentration, offers the student a background in the 
technology of fibers, yarns and fabrics and the manufacturing processes involved. The 
Design concentration gives a broad foundation in textiles and specializes in the application 
of design principles to the wide range of textile materials. 

Opportunities for outstanding undergraduate students are allowed in graduate studies 
including research sponsored by University funds and industrial and government 
sponsors. 

The Textile and Apparel Management department also administrates the Eli Whitney 
Scholarship program for students wishing to undertake a study of international business in 
conjunction with their studies in Textile and Apparel Management. This program permits 
the student to earn a B.A. degree as offered by the College of Humanities and Social 
Sciences and a B.S. degree in Textile and Apparel Management.

The Department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry, and Science offers bachelor of 
science degrees embracing a number of disciplines. Students receive a fundamental knowl- 
edge of the science and engineering involved in the production of polymers, fibers, yarns 
and fabrics, and products based on them, and the process of dyeing and finishing. 

The B.S. in Textile Chemistry is heavily oriented to the chemistry of polymers, their 
formation, and the preparation of textile materials for the consumer including scouring, 
bleaching, printing, dyeing and finishing. The degree program offers four different con- 
centrations: (a) dyeing and finishing management, (b) dyeing and finishing operations, (c) 
dyeing and finishing science, and (d) polymer chemistry. The first two concentrations are 
primarily for students who want a bachelor of science degree, whereas the other concentra- 
tions are oriented toward students wanting advanced studies. However, the student taking 
dyeing and finishing operations or dyeing and finishing management can use elective 
courses to achieve a background suitable for graduate studies. 

The B.S. in Textile Engineering provides a broad base of fundamental engineering 
courses as a foundation for studies in textile engineering. The textile engineering courses 
deal with the application of scientific and engineering principles to the design and control 
of all aspects of fiber, textile and apparel process, products and machinery. These include 
natural and man-made materials, interaction of materials with machines, safety and 
health, energy conservation, and waste and pollution control. The B.S. in Textile Engineer- 
ing is offered jointly with the College of Engineering. 

The B.S. in Textile Materials Science provides students with a fundamental knowledge 
of textiles material, including the science of modern materials and composites, as well as a 
technical understanding of the interactions between materials and machines in manu- 
facturing operations. This curriculum combines elements of fiber physics, engineering, 
polymer science and production technology. It incorporates modern aspects of fiber mate- 
rials science, including composites and advanced materials, computer applications and 
modern measurements into a science based program.

No specific undergraduate degree track is associated with a pre-professional veterinary 
medicine program. However, faculty members from the College of Veterinary Medicine 
and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences serve as advisors to undergraduate 
students enrolled and pursuing a baccalaureate program usually in a science related field. 
Pre-professional course requirements are listed below. After completion of the required 
courses, students may be eligible to apply for the professional veterinary program. Course 
requirements may be changed annually and are determined by the Committee on Admis- 
sions in the College of Veterinary Medicine. For further information about admissions 
requirements and the professional program contact the College of Veterinary Medicine 
Office of Admissions. NCSU. 4700 Hillsborough St., Raleigh, NC 27695-8401, (919) 829- 
4200 or 4205. 

Undergraduate applicants with interests in veterinary medicine enrolled in the under- 
graduate programs at North Carolina State University at Raleigh are expected to be 
pursuing a baccalaureate degree (to include the social science and humanities require- 
ments in the appropriate curriculum). Minimum requirements and course stipulations for 
curriculum planning should be followed through each of the departments or schools offer- 
ing the appropriate degree. It is the responsibility of the students and their pre-professional 
advisors to be knowledgeable of those requirements. 

All courses listed below should be completed by the end of the spring semester and only 2 
courses may be pending completion as of the January 1 deadline.

PROFESSIONAL DEGREE PROGRAM & CAREER OPPORTUNITIES 

Veterinary medicine is a science career dealing with the recognition, treatment, control 
and prevention of diseases in animals. Career options are unlimited and variable as animal 
health impacts upon the health and economic welfare of the nation. DVM candidates may 
select several career options upon graduation. Federal government, private industry, 
private practice, and research and teaching activities in a university setting are all possible 
for graduates and licensed doctors of veterinary medicine. Successful completion of the 
professional training program should prepare students for appropriate state licensing 
examination in the state of North Carolina and others. Persons interested in the profes- 
sional courses offered may receive a brochure by contacting the College of Veterinary 
Medicine.

ROTC programs will receive free elective credit for Aerospace Studies (AS), Military 
Science (MS), or Naval Science (NS) courses up to the limit of free electives in their 
curriculum. 

DEPARTMENT OF MILITARY SCIENCE (ARMY ROTC) 

Professor: Lieutenant Colonel W. T. Sabata 

Instructors: Major P. K. Riddel, Major S. H. Harrington III. Captain K. P. McMillen. Captain K. Sanders. Captain M. 
Lyons 

Mission. The mission of the Army ROTC Program is to train college men and women to 
become commissioned officers in sufficient numbers to meet Active Army, Reserve, and 
National Guard requirements. 

Program of Instruction. The Army ROTC program consists of a voluntary six- 
semester-hour Basic Course (freshmen and sophomore level) and a two-year Advanced 
Course (junior and senior level) which includes a six week camp in the summer prior to the 
senior year. 

One may enter the Advanced Course without participating in the Basic Course by any of 
the following methods: 

SIMULTANEOUS MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM (SMP): Members of Reserve or 
National Guard units may take advantage of this program and, if accepted, enroll directly 
into the Advanced Course. SMP participants will be assigned to a unit near NCSU or home 
for part-time monthly officer training and will receive the ROTC Advanced Course subsist- 
ence payment of $100 per month, plus approximately $120 per month for the one weekend of 
Reserve or Guard training. In addition, two weeks of Annual Training will be required for 
which the individual will receive full pay. 

PRIOR SERVICE: Service veterans are eligible for placement into the Advanced 
Course. 

BASIC SUMMER CAMP: Successful completion of the six week basic summer camp, 
held at Ft. Knox, Kentucky, is an alternative to the basic course. 

TRANSFER CREDIT: Students entering as transfer students from other institutions 
may receive credit for work completed at other Senior ROTC units. 

JUNIOR ROTC: Students who have participated in a Junior ROTC in high school may 
receive placement credit as determined by the Professor of Military Science. 

Eligibility: All full time freshmen and sophomores may enroll in any Military Science 
Basic Course offering without obligation to the Army. To be eligible for participation in the 
Advanced Course, applicants must be in good academic standing and demonstrate satisfac- 
tory performance in the Basic Course. Additionally, applicants for commissioning must be 
able to be commissioned by their 30th birthday; however, an age waiver may be obtained as 
long as the individual will be commissioned prior to his or her 34th birthday. A student 
must have a minimum of two years remaining as a full time student at either the under- 
graduate or graduate level. 

Professional Military Electives: There are seven Professional Military Electives which 
must be taken or an approval obtained of a waiver for them. These electives must be 
completed or waived prior to commissioning. 

Delays for Graduate Study: Qualified ROTC graduates may delay their entry into 
active service in order to obtain advanced academic degrees. Fellowships for advanced 
academic study are available to selected ROTC graduates, allowing up to two years of 
graduate study while receiving full pay and allowances plus payment for tuition, all fees, 
textbooks and required supplies. 

Financial Aid: Army scholarships of two to four years which pay for tuition, all fees and 
textbooks are available on a competitive basis to students who are strongly motivated and 

294 



academically qualified. Students in the Advanced Course who are preparing for a commis- 
sioning receive a subsistence allowance of $100 per month (tax free) up to a maximum of 
$2000. All Advanced Course cadets are paid approximately one-half the basic pay of a 
second lieutenant, while attending the six-week Advanced Camp, plus travel allowances to 
and from camp. 

Service Opportunities: Scholarship recipients may serve four years active duty upon 
commissioning or eight years in the United States Army Reserve or National Guard. 
Nonscholarship commissionees must serve three years on active duty or eight years with 
the Army Reserve or National Guard. Service consists of one weekend drill per month and 
two weeks annual training. 

Program Features: Army ROTC classes are unique, offering instruction and a practi- 
cal, working knowledge of leadership. Students are challenged early in their ROTC train- 
ing to enable them to develop sound judgement, the desire to achieve, acceptance of 
responsibility, personal confidence, and to learn the principles of personnel management. 
The primary vehicle for this training during the academic year is Leadership Laboratory, 
where cadet officers and non-commissioned officers conduct instruction under the super- 
vision of the Military Science Department's faculty. The intensive summer Advanced 
Camp is extremely effective in developing one emotionally, mentally and physically. All 
Army ROTC training is focused on preparing the student to meet the challenges of tomor- 
row's society, whether in a military or civilian career. 

Distinguished Military Students: The University names outstanding Army ROTC 
students as Distinguished Military Graduates. 

Uniforms: Uniforms for Army ROTC are provided by the federal government. 

DEPARTMENT OF AEROSPACE STUDIES (AIR FORCE ROTC) 

Professor: Colonel R. H. Haden 

Instructors: Major F. P. Dunlap Jr.. Captain R. Iseman, Captain C. L. Casey 

Program. There is a four-year and a two-year program that leads to a commission in the 
United States Air Force. 

The four-year program allows freshmen to enroll in Aerospace Studies courses in the 
same manner as other college courses for the first two years. Students take these courses as 
free electives and incur no military obligation unless they are receiving an AFROTC 
scholarship. These first two years are called the General Military Course (GMC). The last 
two years of AFROTC comprise the Professional Officer Course (POC). Non-AFROTC 
sophomore students may compete with GMC cadets for a position in the POC and obtain a 
commission under the two-year program. 

The two-year program is available to those who do not take the first two years of Air Force 
ROTC. Interested students must contact the Professor of Aerospace Studies early in the 
first semester of their sophomore year. Accepted students will attend a six-week summer 
field training encampment (two-year program) or a four-week encampment (four-year 
program) before entering their junior year and the POC. 

Students with a pilot allocation usually attend a flight instruction program during the 
summer following their junior year. This training is very similar to that available for 
obtaining a private pilot's license. Junior cadets may also apply for other special summer 
voluntary programs such as USAF Academy Freefall Parachute Training, British (RAF) 
Exchange Program, Army Airborne Training Program, Strategic Defense Initiative 
R&D Program, and other specialized professional development programs related to the 
cadet's future career area. 

Upon graduation and satisfactory completion of the POC, the student is commissioned a 
second lieutenant in the USAF. 

Financial Aid. Air Force ROTC students are encouraged to apply for scholarships for 
two or three years. Scholarships pay for tuition, fees, books, and provide students $100 per 
month during the academic year for miscellaneous expenses. Scholarships are awarded by 
the Air Force based primarily on college academic achievement. 

Students in the GMC, other than scholarship students, receive no monetary allowance. 
All POC students receive the $100 per month during the academic year. 

295 



Curriculum. The AFROTC educational program provides professional preparation for 
future Air Force officers. During the first two years, courses will focus on a detailed study 
of the Air Force mission and organization, other military services, the evolution of Air- 
power concepts and doctrine, and the history of Airpower employment. During the last two 
years, the focus will be on leadership and management and an in-depth examination of 
National Security, American defense strategy and policy, and the methods for managing 
conflict. Throughout all four years a progressive development of communicative skills is 
integrated into each course. Officership is developed through leadership laboratory, tradi- 
tional military social functions, base orientation trips, and cadet-centered programs. 

Eligibility. There are no enrollment requirements for the GMC. To enter the POC 
students must pass an Air Force Officer Qualifications Test, meet physical and academic 
requirements, and be selected by the Professor of Aerospace Studies and Air Force ROTC 
headquarters. In addition, students must complete their degree and the POC before their 
30th birthday. Veterans may obtain a waiver of maximum nonflying age requirement up to 
age 35. 

Students desiring to enter the four-year program simply register for the freshmen 
Aerospace Studies course. Other students should contact the ROTC office on campus in 
Room 141 Reynolds Coliseum: or write to: Professor of Aerospace Studies, NCSU, Box 7308, 
Raleigh, North Carolina 27695-7308. 

Organization. The AFROTC unit is organized as a cadet wing staffed entirely by cadets 
for leadership development. They are assisted and advised by the instructors. Two collat- 
eral organizations, Arnold Air Society and Angel Flight support the wing organization as 
well as the University. 

Uniforms. Uniforms are provided by the federal government. 

NAVAL SCIENCE (NAVAL ROTC) 

Professor: Captain R. B. Avery 

Associate Professor: LCDR Walter Neboshynsky. Instructors: Major Thomas L. Cariker. Lieutenant Julie M. Johnson. 
Lieutenant Stephen Shinego 

Mission. The purpose of the Naval ROTC Program is to provide a source of highly 
qualified and motivated naval officers, both men and women, to serve on surface ships, in 
aircraft, in submarines, or in the Marine Corps. 

4-Year NROTC Program. There are basically two NROTC Programs leading to a com- 
mission as a Navy or Marine Officer upon graduation, the Scholarship Program and the 
College Program. 

Scholarship Program. The Scholarship Program leads to a commission in the Navy or 
Marine Corps. For students who receive a Navy/Marine Corps scholarship, the Navy will 
pay tuition and fees, buy books, supply uniforms, and pay $100 per month tax-free subsis- 
tence allowance to help defray the cost of normal board at the University. During the 
summers between school years scholarship students will receive 4-6 weeks of at-sea train- 
ing conducted on ships, submarines, and aircraft of the Navy's first line force. Upon 
graduation and commissioning, scholarship students are obligated to serve a minimum of 
four years on active duty. 

College Program. For those students who are interested in a commission and do not 
desire a scholarship, or for those who are seeking an opportunity to qualify for a scholarship 
after entering NCSU, the College Program is available. Selection for the College Program 
is made from students already enrolled at NCSU, with applications being accepted and 
considered by the staff of the NROTC unit. Students enrolled in the College Program are 
provided uniforms and Naval Science textbooks. College Program students compete for 
selection to continue NROTC in Advanced Standing at the end of their sophomore year. 
Selection is based on academic and demonstrated professional performance. Those selected 
for Advanced Standing receive $100 per month subsistence allowance during the final two 
years of the program. College Program midshipmen receive a single summer training 
cruise between the junior and senior year. Except for administrative differences, no 
distinction is made between the Scholarship and College Program midshipmen. The min- 



296 



imum active duty commitment following graduation for a College Program student is three 
years. 

Students in the College Program are eligible to compete for scholarships at regular 
intervals. Most College Program students who have demonstrated above average academic 
and professional performance in the unit have received scholarships. 

Two-Year Programs. The Two-Year Programs offer an opportunity to participate in 
NROTC during the final two years of University study. Both Scholarship and College 
Programs exist, offering the same advantages to the student having two years of college 
remaining as the respective four-year programs. Applications for this program must be 
completed by March 15 prior to the starting year. Upon selection, the candidate attends a 
six-week training course at Newport, Rhode Island, during the summer between the 
sophomore and junior years so that he or she may receive instruction in the Naval Science 
subjects normally covered in the first two years at the University. Participants in this 
training course receive uniforms, room and board, and officer candidate pay during the 
period and. upon satisfactory completion of training, enter the NROTC program as third 
year students. The application process can be time consuming. In order to meet the March 
15 deadline, students are encouraged to contact the Department of Naval Science before 
December 1 of their sophomore year. 

The Marine Option. A limited number of quotas are available for students who wish to 
enter either of the NROTC Programs as Marine Officer candidates. For others who may 
decide upon a Marine Corps commission after joining NROTC, selection for the Marine 
Option may be made in the sophomore year. A midshipman's status as a Marine Option will 
result in some modifications to the curriculum and the final summer training period. 

Curriculum. Due to the increasingly advanced technologies being employed by the Navy 
and Marine Corps, candidates for Navy Commissions are encouraged to select academic 
majors in mathematics, engineering, or scientific disciplines. However, each student in the 
NROTC program is free to choose his or her area of major study. 

The NROTC training program emphasizes academics, leadership, military organiza- 
tion, and physical fitness. Required Naval Science courses are fully accredited, taken for 
free elective credit and include Naval Orientation, Engineering, Weapons Systems, Navi- 
gation, Naval Operations, and Leadership and Management. Marine Option midshipmen 
substitute Evolution of Warfare and Amphibious Warfare for selected courses. Additional 
University courses may be required depending upon one's major; however, all Navy option 
scholarship midshipmen must complete one year of calculus and physics. In addition to the 
courses taken for University credit, midshipmen will attend one leadership laboratory 
period each week. 

Midshipmen Life. Academic excellence is emphasized throughout the NROTC Pro- 
gram with commensurate participation in the full range of campus extra curricular 
activities. The NROTC unit is organized as a midshipmen battalion to facilitate leadership 
development. The battalion is staffed entirely by midshipmen under the supervision of staff 
instructors. Additionally, midshipmen have opportunities to examine all aspects of life in 
the Navy and Marine Corps and gain leadership experience through field trips, summer 
cruise, sail training, and social activities. Further information regarding application for 
and admission into the N.C. State Naval ROTC may be obtained on campus in Room 102 
Reynolds Coliseum or by writing to the Professor of Naval Science, Box 7310, NCSU, 
Raleigh, North Carolina 27695-7310 or by calling (919) 515-2757/6216.

Research Triangle 



The unique "Research Triangle" in North Carolina has captured national and interna- 
tional attention. It is comprised of the Research Triangle Park, a world renowned research 
park, and three major research universities. Because of this wealth of educational and 
research opportunities, the Triangle area contains the highest total of Ph.D. scientists and 
engineers per capita, in the nation. The Triangle universities - NCSU, the University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Duke University - have a subsidiary campus in the 
Research Triangle Park - the Research Triangle Institute. The Institute, which operates as 
a contract research organization, has an annual research revenue of approximately $112 
million. 

The Research Triangle Park, founded in 1959, now has more than 59 public and private 
industrial research facilities, situated on 6,800 acres of land. Over 34,000 people work in the 
Park and over 30,000 additional jobs have been created outside the Park as a result of its 
existence. Organizations in the Park include such government facilities as the National 
Humanities Center, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, the Environ- 
mental Protection Agency, and the National Center for Health Statistics. Private com- 
panies such as Glaxo Pharmaceuticals, Northern Telecom, and Reichhold Chemicals have 
their North American headquarters in the Park. Two major, state-supported research 
initiatives in Microelectronics and Biotechnology are located in the Park and North Caro- 
lina's Supercomputing Center is housed there as well. Faculty and graduate students from 
the universities work closely with many of the Park companies. Scientists and researchers 
from companies like Burroughs Wellcome, IBM, and Becton-Dickinson frequently hold 
adjunct appointments in one or another of the Triangle Universities.

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS 

The course descriptions are arranged first in alphabetical order according to course 
prefix reflecting the department or discipline of the course. Some courses are cross-listed, 
indicating that they are offered in two or more departments or disciplines. Within each of 
the prefix groups, the course descriptions are arranged by course number: numbers 
100-299 are courses intended primarily for freshmen and sophomores; numbers 300-499 
are courses intended primarily for juniors and seniors; numbers 490-498 are seminar, 
project, or special topics courses; number 499 is for undergraduate research. 

This section contains all undergraduate courses, 100-level through 400-level, approved 
for the 1993 Spring Semester. It also contains selected 500-level graduate courses which are 
available to advanced undergraduates who have the required prerequisites. It does not 
contain any 600-level courses which are available to graduate students only. For a complete 
listing of 500- and 600-level courses, see the Graduate Catalog. 

A typical course description shows the prefix, number, and title followed by prerequisite, 
credit, and offering information. Prerequisites are courses or levels of achievement that a 
student is expected to have completed successfully prior to enrolling in a course. Corequi- 
sites are courses which should be taken concurrently by students who have not previously 
completed the corequisites. Prerequisites and corequisites for a given course may be 
waived by the instructor of the course or section. It is the student's responsibility to satisfy 
prerequisites, or obtain from the instructor written waiver of prerequisites, for any course 
in which he or she may enroll. Failure to satisfy prerequisites may result in removal from 
enrollment in the course. Consent of the department is required for all practicum and 
individual special topics or special problems courses as well as internships and thesis or 
dissertation research. Some courses also have restrictive statements, such as "Credit in 
both MA 141 and MA 131 is not allowed." Restrictive statements for a given course may be 
waived only by a college dean. 

An example of credit information is: 4(3-2) F, S, Sum. The 4 indicates the number of 
semester hours credit awarded for satisfactory completion of the course. The (3-2) normally 
indicates that the course meets for three hours of lecture or seminar each week and for two 
hours of laboratory, problem, or studio work each week. Some courses are offered for 
variable credit, and a listing of 1-6 indicates that from one to six semester hours of credit 
may be earned as arranged by the department offering the course. 

Offering information is shown as F, S, Sum, Alt. yrs. F indicates that the course is 
normally offered in the Fall Semester, S indicates the Spring Semester, and Sum. indicates 
the Summer Sessions. Alt. yrs. indicates the course is normally offered in alternate years. 
The absence of offering information indicates that there is no fixed pattern, and students 
should check with the department concerning when a particular course will be offered. 

Other abbreviations used in the course descriptions are: CI, consent of instructor 
required; grad., graduate; undergrad., undergraduate; sr., senior; jr., junior; soph., sopho- 
more: fr., freshman; lab., laboratory; lect., lecture; and sem., seminar.
